Default Volvo rwd ac lines and hoses... metric or standard?

Iím going to attempt some ac repair on 240... I have a busted metal line that Iím going to try to sewage and solder and a second to crimp new fittings on. My question is really does Volvo use metric ac fittings and lines or is it all standard hoses, lines and fittings?

Standard. No metric.

'84 242ti, fourth owner, mine since 2003. Always garaged since brand new. Old-school rounds because I like. B21FT, SDS EFI/IGN, TD04HL-15G, T5Z trans with 0.73 OD, hydro clutch, 3.91 diff with unmodified G80.

Unless it's a '93, which uses metric threads on the inlet/outlet of the accumulator, all of them are standard AC fittings.
