Default Fuel line replacement.

Any recommendation for replacing both the fuel lines(parts wise)? I need to replace from the filter all the way up to the firewall. Both of them.

I only had to replace about four inches of fuel line from the filter toward the engine. I bought a Dorman fuel line repair kit, but needed to get it bent. (I had access to a machine shop back then, which shaped it in about three seconds.)

If you can't grab a decent-looking line from a junkyard, you'll need some sort of tubing bender, at the very least.

I had stopped by Napa the other day and they suggested using 3/8" brake line after cutting the one end off and attaching the threaded male plug onto it. Autozone doesn't sell anything, just the replacement plastic hoses and couplings.

I'd prefer to just replace both of the lines all at once, less worries.
