Not Happy Brake lines rotted! (05 gt)

Just thought I'd share this info, might be a good thing to check for you guys n gals:

Took the gt for a service & MOT last week and they discovered while changing the rear brake pads the handbrake lines was full of rust, when the mechanic removed the line from the brake calliper the thing fell apart and broke (left side). Then he removed the right side one and noticed it was holding on by a thread of hair!!!

I didn't notice any problems during driving/parking so maybe you guys should have that checked too.

And on a side note, someone's key'd my car in a few spots and tried to steal my side indicator thing but ended up snapping it off.

Looking to get a full professional respray this year, this is a good excuse!
