ok so i installed everything tonight and bled it. i find there is a leak in between the calipers for the 30mm 300zx calipers. i bought it from a guy who said he rebuilt it. so does anyone know where i can get those o-rings that go in between the calipers?

Are the O-rings missing? I hate to break it to you, but Nissan doesn't sell those O-rings with any of their rebuild kits. Most people planning on rebuilding their calipers just re-use the old ones. You only have two choices: 1) Get the O-rings off another caliper (seems like a waste) or, 2) find a suitable match at a hardware store (kinda iffy). Are you sure the two caliper halves are torqued together properly? (be careful not to overtighten if they're aluminum) Are you sure the leak is coming from the caliper "halves" and not from the brakeline or something? It pays to be sure before doing the "hard" solution first.

Good Luck

Actually there IS a third solution (but it involves downtime). You can get re-built calipers from a reputable auto parts store and trade in your "leaky" ones as a core exchange. Price difference should be minimal (and may even be worth avoiding the headache).

I just found o-rings that fit the hole and they sealed fine as they said above they don't make the flat ones anymore.

You gotta be careful as a gasoline will deteriorate many different types of rubber.
