Fuel line

The standard carburettor fuel pipe is ugly. Also, the one on this car is a bit rusty, but it’s the ugly that really bothers me. Time to make a new one! But first, the original piece:

It just hangs between the carburettors, with a few random wiggles to clear various obstacles. Ick.

Some bundy tube and a bender to make the new fuel line…

Flare the ends so the flexible hoses don’t fall off…

Attach the branch (silver solder is lovely stuff)

Tidy it up, plate and polish it, then check that it fits. If it doesn’t fit, stomp on it and repeat the process (Frustration, rage, resignation, and repeat of process not pictured here).
