Problem installing line lock

i picked up a B&M line lock, and i seem to have come across a problem.

The holes on the line lock are 1/8 and the hole on the master cylinder are 9/16.

I found a fitting that is 9/16 male to a 1/8 female and this with cover the connection of the line lock to the master cylinder.

Heres where the problem come in. I went all over town, but could not find the other one i needed...a 1/8 male to 9/16 female to cover the connection of the front brakes to the line lock. I cant even find one on summit.

What should i do?

glad you figured it out.

I have the same car. For future reference; this is how I did mine. I was able to use the original brake lines by disconnecting them from the proportioning valve and bending them up near the shock mount. Then tied them together with a splitter. Then I ran a line from the splitter to my line lock and another from the line lock to the proportioning valve. See pic.
