    Anyone know where I can get some aluminum pipe to run from my fuel cell up to my fuel pump?

    I have seen these on Funny cars but called around and none of the chassis builders I spoke with could help. It's 1 1/4" I believe.

    I would like one that I can bend a 90 in so I can just have two short hoses connecting it to my pump and fuel cell, this minimizes any chance of the line sucking shut or getting cut by the rack and pinion or any other things that may hit it or rub it.

    Thanks,
    Trevor Sherwood

    Mandrel bent tubing is best - does not collapse at bend radius - look at Burns Stainless (they have aluminum tube also) or McKinney - most are 1.5" but 1.25" diameter is common too...

    Trevor; the Global stuff is all huge radius, 8" CLR is way too big!
    go to burnsstainless.com
    you want part # LB-125-20-16-6061
    that's a 2" CLR that will actually fit your car!
