Definitely not - do NOT use copper tubing in place of steel brake tubing. The copper will not withstand the hydraulic pressure and the fluid will leak - perhaps suddenly - potentially putting yourself and others in danger.
Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; wwww.RockAuto.com or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts. New brake lines made of the correct grade of steel are inexpensive when compared to the risk.

copper tubing is not recomended because of high pressure. You can buy the brake lines at the auto parts store but you need a tube bender to bend the tubing as you go also need to know how to use that tool. I suggest to practice with old brake line..
