    joining at the reservoirs - - can

    that's not a Toyota part number-maybe Specter.

    You have two choices:
    buy new bare line and double flare your old cleaned up 9mm x 1.0 fittings onto it.
    or
    replace (tap out?) unions on brake cylinder to the metric standard 10mm x 1.0 pitch and drive on down to Napa for a new line with fittings.

    the chances of: getting a used line with good fittings shipped intact to you are astronomical.

    I purchased most of my brake lines and fittings from the dealer, its all still available through Toyota and the prices aren't much different from Spectre or Man A Fre.
