2 safety points.

you have nice steel braided fuel lines ;D with normal hose clamps :'(

i would take the braided fuel lines out off the car and have the connections pressed on instead off hose clamps.

hose clamps are not designed for 5 bar working pressure and they are not designed for braided fuel lines but for rubber lines.

and running them inside the car is not a good idea either in case off a leak.

Thanks for the safety points V8. But dont worry the hose clips were just on there to keep it all together while i was mocking it up. It is all sleeved and crimped now. So i dont think i should have any issues with leaks. Ilkeep a few fire extinguishers in the car just in case  ;D

those little fire extinghers are no match for a fuel fire in a car.
