Four Wheel Disc Brakes?

I ran a search but it is almost a year old, so I thought I would bring it back and ask...I have an 02 focus sedan that has crummy drum brakes in the back and I am curious if it would be easy and fairly inexpensive to buy the brake lines from another focus sedan that has disc brakes in the rear and swapping them out myself. I hate the drum brake look and if I was to have 4 wheel disc brakes, then when I upgrade to bigger brakes, then I could change all four. I think it would look silly with big front brakes but a crappy drum in the back. Suggestions???

Not really difficult, but time consuming. I did stainless lines at the same time and a few other things while the car was on the lift. It went smoothley. It would be hard to do without a lift, but it is doable ( one wheel at a time)
