Running new fuels

My project requires brand new fuels being run back to front.
I've installed a completely different fuel tank into my 93 dakota which normally located midship on the drivers side. the new tank is in the rear- where the spare tire used to be. Exsisting fuel lines are now too short.
Would like to use metal lines.
Can anyone refer a site or book for tips,tricks and "how to" hints?

fuel lines

u can cut the old line at the rear about 6" long and do a small flare on both cut lines and run flex tubing in between. making sure the flex line is ethanol proof..

Find your local Napa. They'll have tubing and fittings.

I've always usded the metal brake lines, premade, just add the connectors (unions) and bend to fit. Will last as long as the brake lines do, and you can buy any length, easiy to bend, come in several ,lenghts, just pick what diameter...
