Its very simple, some people are scared of bleeding the system though. Needle nose to remove the clips, 2 wrenches to separate the hard line and rubber line on the body. 1 wrench to remove the line at the caliper. There is no reason to remove/unbolt the caliper if thats what you're saying as already having done. It would actually make things harder because you need to torque down the bolt on the caliper. Make sure you use the new copper washers that come with the lines.

I just got my caliper back from being painted and decide to order new brake lines so I thought to install the lines on the caliper and then connect it to the main line to reduce the chance of brake fluid on the caliper
