Removing AC lines for repair

O.K. so I've tried to remove the long AC lines that go from the evaporator to the compressor and drier with no luck. The routing is such that I don't think it can be done without removing the engine, some brake lines, etc. I'm thinking of maybe cutting the (hard) lines in a spot where I'd be able to splice them back again using a swage-lok or something like that. The line appears to be steel (and the ferrules). I'll check with a magnet this evening, but the braze-on replacement fittings I see appear to be for aluminum tubing only. Any suggestions? I hate like hell to put this system back together with 25 year old hoses...

I see it may not be a bad idea to use a filter on the high side as a splice. Are there fittings available to do a splice on the low side fitting (larger diameter tube)?
