The answer is: not much needs to be moved out of the way to replace hard brake pipes / lines to front calipers. Despite the complex bends of the hard pipe, it can installed pretty easily. Exceptionally easy for SAABs. If the connection between the hard line and brake line to the caliper is seized or rusted tight, dry install the new hard lines in parallel with the old lines and switch over the connections at the ABS module and caliper brake lines as efficiently as you can. Cut the old lines out in sections with rags handy and plan on going to the DIY car wash to clean off the fluid that will leak. The right side requires feeding the new u shaped pipe under some obstacles at the fire wall but the new pipes will withstand some handling without crimping. For the left side it helped to move the coolant resevoir out of the way. Bleed the brakes. FYI, the new pipes had larger sized flare nuts than OE, which is good.
For as complicated as many projects can be, I was shocked how simple this was.
