I'm certainly not telling you how to run fuel lines, nor do I know what your level of experience you have, but when someone mentions fuel and SST, it gets my attention.
SST hasn't been the best choice for gasoline lines or gasoline tanks. If I may suggest at least use double flares on the tubing ends.
Cool looking wheel! :)

the wheel pictured looks flat , it could just be the angle of the pic, is it a standard dish ?

If you use stainless tubing with AN fittings it is single flared, but the tool to swage the tubing is $$$$.
Also, if anyone is interested, I have a used OEM wheel from my Donzi. The white is dingy, I didn't try to clean it. Free to a good home!
email johnywhale (at) aol.com can send pics this weekend, I'll have to find it.
