brake swap on 85gt

I have a 85gt that i have put 03 cobra front brakes on using the 94-95 spindles. Every thing bolted up fine(WOW FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING) I have new SS brakes line that came with the kit i bought. The ends on the SS lines have a different thread size than my factory 85 hard lines have. Is there an adaptor i can buy to make them bolt up or if i have to change the lines is there a year car i can order brake lines for that will fit?

You needs one of these for the right hand side front brake line:

The left front brake hose should bolt up correctly.

We also sell the correct front brakes hoses to put the later model brakes onto your car, but since you already have the hoses, it will be cheaper to just buy the one adapter above.
