The manufacture date is printed on the hoses.
The brakes all seemed to bleed good. The car has all metal brake lines and that's something I'd never try to change myself let alone pay a shop to do it.
I got the booster off yesterday. Now to find a replacement or try to have it rebuilt.

There are rubber hoses on the front wheels and in the lines towards the rear. You'd have a hard time going around corners if the lines were all steel.
