In the process of pulling one my front shock towers I inadvertently cooked a brake line freeing up a nut. I finished buttoning things up and when I backed out of my garage there was no brake pressure.

I'm thinking I'm going to crawl over to a shop around the corner and have them drain the system, but is there a chance I damaged anything? The brake line was pretty lit up, should it be replaced? In hindsight I should have used a shield.

You probably just annealed it. However since your life depends on your brakes I would do as John recommends and replace it. They are cheap.

They should be easy to get a replacement made just check that there isn't a special flare on the ends.
