    Well thanks for all the replies everyone. I did manage to get the pin out and get them loose, but still could not get the nut to come off connecting the hard line to the rubbers. I have been jacking with this shit for three weeks and just gave in and took it to a brake place. The guy had a set of interesting channel lock type things that I definitely need that he said has reverse facing teeth that he swore he could getting anything off with. Turns out he was right. So I did avoid having to do the hard lines, though i'll need a vice grip probably if I have to take them off again any time soon since they're almost totally rounded. :33:

    Sometimes you have to know when to say when... Another option would be to cut it a little further back and then use a compression fitting. Not ideal but it would get you down the road.
