Got the fuel line in and the brake line as well. In 2004 it's a single brake line and in 1999 it's a single line that branches off at the rear into two lines. I had rounded the brake line nuts in the two-way splitter under the driver-side floor area so I needed to get them out and make up a new line.
Friday night went online and order a flaring kit, some copper line, and some brake nuts from Halfords and picked up Saturday morning. Really important to BUY A PIPE CUTTER.

I ended up having to scavenge brake line nuts off the other lines because there's a small difference between the Halfords nuts and the Jimny nuts. Halfords brake line nut notice the 3 mm at the end of the nut
 This is the jimny nut and that 3 mm makes all the difference
Other wise the flaring tool is easy to use and does the job all in all not bad for €30 and the copper pipe and nuts another €20 so affordable and a good set of tools to have .

The other thing I forgot to mention was I cleaned the lines with a wire wheel, and sandpaper and then sprayed them with rattle can zinc paint.

To any of you who have changed a clutch from the floor, I salute you. I was going to not bother but now I'm glad I changed it while the body was off. Even with the body off the bolts under the starter motor were tough.
