How to replace brake hose on 1990 Ford Aerostar?

Thank you guys for the suggestions about the brakes. I changed the driver's side today without any problems, hopefully, but the passenger side needs a new rotor and a new hose. I got the old rotor off and ordered a new one, and will replace the outer bearing and inner and outer greece seals. The job cost $126 just for parts at Advance though, which seems high to me. I guess if I took it to a brake place it would have cost more like $300 though?

The hose looks pretty easy, but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how to not let too much brake fluid escape, so there's not too much trouble with bleeding. Also any other advice or tricks would be much appreciated.

Remove cap on master cyl reservoir , cover top with a piece of plastic bag and screw cap back on .Stops circuit venting and slows/ stops fluid quite a bit.

Be sure to change it with the caliper on the vehicle and bleed it as you've introduced air into the system.
