Buggy plumbing questions, brakes, coolers, etc

Posting for my buddy Brain, he is afraid of getting flamed in this section, but Im use to it do here:
Building an FJ40 buggy
this is it: https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=562600


1. what size and material hard lines should I use for the brakes? I am planing on 3/16 steel or stainless steel. (20-25 bucks for 25 feet.)

2. for the fittings, all my crap like master cylinder, cutting brakes, proportioning valves, residual pressure valves, line locks, etc are all 1/8" npt female... so do I buy male flared ends to put on the 3/16 tube to connect everything and use braided SS flex to connect to the axles? Any input on fittings, t's, and mount tabs, etc. for securing them would be helpful.

3. are the male flared ends that will connect to the calipers on the 3/4 ton chevy rears and 1 ton front. are they the same?

Trans Cooling lines

1. I want connect to my cooler from the th350 with SS braided AN lines. is -6AN right for this and what fitting do I need to connect the lines to my trans?

2. I also want to run an oil cooler any suggestions?

Pinion Nuts

what size sockets are needed to remove the pinion nut on a chevy dana 60/ 14boltff? they are bigger than the 1 1/4" I have.
