Being an "Old school" drag racer. I tend to use 1/2" aluminum line. Bends well if not over worked. Will flow PLENTY of volume and polishes up great!

I agree. Be sure to use insulated Adel clamps about every 12 inches to secure the line to the frame or underside of the body to prevent vibration and fatigue of the aluminum. If it is allowed to flex any at all, it will fatigue and crack and you won't like the results.
