210 wagon Rusted out brake lines/ suspension lines

I have a 2002 wagon 210 4 matic. I noticed last winter that the left side suspension and brake lines were starting to seep fluid. The dealer quoted $2000 to replace the rusting lines. The car is otherwise very good with 83,000 miles and is a daily driver for me. I like the car.
What should be done at this point about the line's which have rusted through and released all the self-leveling suspension fluid onto the ground? Is this something that I can do by re-routing the lines and replacing them with copper nickel brake line?
Thanks in advance! My wife wants to junk the vehicle at this point which I have owned now for 11 years and don't want to get rid of.
