That depends on how far you want to go with it. Adding to what JimA said, I acquired a dual-circuit reservoir to go with the dual-circuit master -- this allows you to see which of the circuits is leaking before it quits, which I think is important -- and I made new hard lines for the front. (The single-circuit lines might be made to work, but we decided they were too short to make a clean fit; besides, they were old and cruddy.) The reservoir and master have 8mm fittings, as Jim mentioned, so I knew I'd need 8mm feed lines; two of those take a lot more space than a single 6mm line, and the reservoir is substantially larger as well, so I relocated the reservoir to a more-like-late-stock location at the rear of the boot (near the steering column) and created a new path for the feed lines through the fender well. (I got stock used lines from Jim, by the way.) Not a super-complex job, but it required some thought and work.
