Brake lines/brake fluid change out

Hello Everyone,

I've been trying to locate some braided stainless steel lines, that I can just drop in no problem. My plan of attack until I figure out the wheels is to just change out the segment and change out the brake fluid for something better. My reasoning is that I'm already at 103k, it wouldn't hurt and the lines can be done at the same time. That will buy me more time to think about what I'm going to do wheel wise. Right now I'm in the city alot and getting rims might be out of the question. The car came with steelies (small 14's) with brand new tires with 10k on them and there is alot of tread on them. Any recommendations for brake fluid? I'm going to try and dig around in my manual to see if it says how much you need.

DOT 4 seems to be the way to go. Now I just have to figure out the lines.
