I would like to know if anybody can help me, I have a MBM front disc brakes with a 2" drop on my 69 Camaro and I am trying to hook up the SS braided line I got from Rick's, it is for a 69 Camaro but the hole on the line to bolt to the caliper is bigger, it looks like it takes a 7/16 and the one on the caliper it is a 3/8-16 thread, and also it looks like it needs to be longer, I spoke to MBM and they do not know anything, this kit come with the car when I got it, where can I find the right SS braided line to fit the calipers and bolts and should they be longer than the stock lines with a 2" drop, or will I need to buy new Calipers I hate to spend that money but if that is the only way to get it right I will and what caliper should I get, I will not deal with MBM any more they do not know anything about there probucts they sell

Wasted your money on new calipers. The calipers with that 2" drop kit take a 10mm banjo. They're called GM metric calipers. Youyr hoses you got were 7/16", they will work on the 10mm with the correct 10mm banjo bolt. I hope you didn't order the GM large caliper with 7/16" banjo hole because those won't fit your 2" drop kit. GM metrics never came with 7/16" banjo hole, only 10mm.
NOTE: I'm assuming you bought the 2" drop that is a 1 piece cast spindle.

Robert, yes it is the one piece spindle with a 2" drop, and do you know where I can get the right banjo bolts, and the SS braided lines will work I don't need to get the right SS braided line for a 10MM bolt

The 7/16" hoses you already bought (incorrectly) would have worked fine with the correct 10mm banjo bolts, you could have went to a local auto parts and bought them for much less then what kore charged you, plus selling you more hoses that you really didn't need. The correct 10mm banjo is the same for most all GM cars and trucks from the late 70's early 80's, very common at O'riellys etc.

they said that the 7/16 line would not work so instead of mess around I just got what I needed to finish running the brake lines on my car and get them bleed, and the closet auto parts store to me is about 40 miles away, thank's Robert

Bill you are right there but hopefully I will be good to go on the brake end of my project and on to something else
