Is there a way to install a new fuel line from the Gas tank to the fuel pump on a 1966 Corvette without lifing the body? I read a how to article in a Corvette magazine some years ago that detailed a way to use a small section of rubber hose to bypass a section of the frame so that you didn't have to lift the car from the frame, but I can't remember where I saw it.

I have to be honest, steel fuel line is there for a reason. It is safer in the event of a fire. That is one reason why they don't use rubber hose. Because we only recommend direct fit parts, I have to recommend not using rubber fuel line.
