Not sure what your asking here but with a dual master cylinder you should have some brakes.

It will be a very low pedal but something.

If you have NO brakes, there was also an undetected problem with your rear brakes.

The front brake hose could have failed, a relatively easy fix, or the piston came out of the caliper, due to extreme wear of the brake pads.

Look at both sides of the rotor. If one side feels like sand paper, you need caliper, rotor and brake pads. You should also do both fronts.

Did the "Brake" light come on ?

Peddle did go to floor

I freaked out, lots of fluid at rear caliper

I think I got two places up front for fluid

U think I got front brakes and can drive it a couple miles down road to service center?

I don't know. Put your foot on the brake and put in gear. If it doesn't roll, try moving and then stopping fast. Be prepared to put on the emergancy brake.

If the brake warning light on the dash did not come on when the brake pedal went to the floor you also have a problem with your brake warning light.

Bleed the brakes to eliminate the air in the hydraulic system.
