Is the hole in the brake line in the metal line under the vehicle?

Thanks for holding!
Due to the nature of the brake system and the pressure it's under, using a flexible hose here isn't the best option. Best bet here is to get 3/16 metal brake line and splice it in with line unions. All of these are obtainable at any local parts store. Cut the metal line before and after the hole, removing the section with the hole. Cut the 3/16 metal line to fit in the space and then join each end to the existing line using union fittings (view fittings here:https://goo.gl/Fo1ez4 ). Use a metal tube cutter tool to cut the holed-section out (view tool here:https://goo.gl/s6geA8 )
