Banjo Bolt Adapter for Exige Front Brakes

I have an 07 Exige with the 2-pot radial front calipers and lines and I'm upgrading to the 08+ AP Racing cup front brakes, which have Banjo bolt front lines.

Before I take the clamshell off to replace the lines themselves, I want to just run a banjo bolt adapter to the current brake lines... I bought this adapter:
Banjo Union 10mm Banjo Hole to 10mm Port

But on its inside, it has a "male" taper which conflicts with the male taper of the brake lines:



Any thoughts on this and does any one know where I can get the required adapter to make this work?

Thanks

You should just do it right from the start...remove the clam and install the correct stainless steel lines.
But if you insist on screwing it up, you probably wouldn't mind using aluminum fittings on your brake system which you should NEVER do.

And I don't know which one of the following you would need...

Again, a WARNING!!!! Do not use the above mentioned aluminum union on any brake lines! I'm just pointing out what is available.

Yes, this is primarily a temporary solution until I get my front clam off and an actual Banjo Line installed. FYI, the Lotus Motorsports AP Racing kit comes with this exact adapter I'm looking for... https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f91...aliper-394050/

All of the fittings you listed are AN related. I need a M10 Banjo to M10x1.
