I'm planning to replace all of the rigid brake lines on my 96 with copper/nickel and brass fittings.
Just wanted to check what thread size the fittings are before I order anything.
...and can anyone recommend a good supplier?

3/8" UNF for male/female connections. Used to get them from local motor factors bagged 10 each.
