  • Fuel lines - advice

    Should I be running these lines outside as in the pic, or inside ?
    Anyone have any photos of this wing root area with wings attached ? I’m finding it hard to visualize. Thanks.

    I did it that way.

      May interfere with the windshield that way, check to be sure. I run them inside and come out behind the windshield post. Keep it as low as possible.

        That's a good point, I measured to make sure they cleared the windshield.

        I ran them inside, but there is room to go outside. If I did it again I would do it like yours - I think it will look better than mine.

          How are folks securing it to the frame, and is wear against the frame a concern?

          I was going to use spiral plastic protector and nylon string to tie it to the vertical post. But that might be overkill.

            I used some short sections of clear plastic tubing, and some waxed twine wrapping the fuel line to the pillar. Not my idea, someone else posted it a while back. It seems to work fine. I also ran my lines outside like in Nev's picture. It clears the windshield on mine.

              I welded some tabs and used adel clamps to keep it off the tubing.
