copper microbore brake line size...?

hi all - does anyone know what size of brake line to use? I cannot find it anywhere......

different but related question - I cannot find flare fittings for copper microbore in metric - is this generally correct? Is everything still done in inches (not specifically in the auto industry but in general)?

Use 3/16" pipe/tubing.

From memory the fittings are all threaded M10 x 1.0

Yep I used 3/16". Use Kunifer too as it lasts longer.
