Steel with copper plate is better for the lines. The copper will
become brittle and crack eventually from vibration. You could
probably get away with copper on very short runs (like from the fuel
pump to the carburetors where both are firmly mounted to the same
piece of metal), but make sure there is some rubber or plastic
flexible hose between fuel lines mounted to the chassis and the

Just thought I'd see if I could generate some traffic on the list.

I have a 46 1/2 ton pickup that's been sitting forever, and I've decided
to start working on it some. I've had this truck since I was in the 6th
grade (almost 30 years), and now it's mostly a rustbucket. I drove it
for several years, and it's been in my family since nearly new. I've
started sanding and priming just to stop the rust. I've also bought a
welder and I'm going to start teaching myself so that I can fix the cab
corners, etc.

I hope to hear some similar stories.
