The Town cars are notorious for the metal brake lines( which lead to the rear of the car along the frame) to be corroded and rusted through. Normal repair would involve splicing into two good areas of the line and installing a new section of metal line using compression fittings. Ask your shop if the have rolled brake line tubing.
