    Default Solid fuel lines

    Hi, I'm probably posting this in the wrong section. I'm looking to replace the solid fuel lines on the E30. Are these still available from the Stealer or can they be bought elsewhere. Thanks in advance, Joe

    Holy feck. £119.77 for the two fuel lines and the rear brake pipe. A bit steep I think, the pipes on her aren't that bad.

    You can get kunifer pipe and make them up yourself, just make sure it's kunifer and not copper. Downside is that you will have to bend them yourself

    I'm sure if I give him a call tomorrow he might be able to help. If it's any cheaper with the euro sure I could get them delivered to Foynes or Ringaskiddy I'm sure.

    Aye they come pre bent alright. I bought the three of them, feed, return and vent. You may need to buy a few clips when youíre at it. The vent pipe runs on its own and had the clips like the brake lines only bigger.

    Itís saves a lot of hassle getting them preformed. I had these fitted in less than an hour. I paid £120 all in for the 3 pipes. Iíd get a few of the jubilee clips and a bit of hose when your at it.
