Different copper types have different wall thickness. That doesn't make sense (hey when does government make sense...)
Seriously, they just don't rate copper at all ?
What about aluminium ?

Is there a minimum wall thickness for steel ?

PFKL974911 BOLT-WASHER, M11X155 thats the spec of the bolts. Think b-series are the same according to lings.

i see where you are coming from with copper lines. but iv never heard of them expanding and losing braking pressure.
the whole system will be changed eventually but time money etc lol
but cheers for the input, interesting to find out other countries regulations.

No worries mate. I ended up getting bolts and gasket from Honda, the company i work for has a dealership so I get good discount.

Full wire tuck complete all I need to do is connect the two looms together and tuck the wiper motor

TD-43U is a OBD-1 distributor for D16A9, you are correct.. The only thing that sort of bothers me in your engine bay is the brake lines. You could have done that nicer, but none the less, great effort man!
