towards the firewall on the drivers side there should be a little container on top of the brake master cylinder, that cap usually just requires you to push down a bit and then twist it off and fill in there up to the appropriate line

There should be a grey colored rubber cap on the top of the ABS reservoir, under it remove the plastic strainer, then get a tiny funnel. Brake fluid will destroy paint, so if you spill any spray it off with some brake clean.
While you are under the hood, look for the sticker that might tell you WHAT YEAR the car is.

Just don't drop the little top with the o-ring on it under the winshield washer fluid tank. Its gonna be a PITA to get out. It will add about an extra 40 min to the abs fill. GOD LUCK
