Putting the car together.

I've been building brake, clutch, fuel and vapor lines.

I put the front and rear suspension on the car.

How are the nipples soldered onto the fuel lines? trying to figure that out... just normal solder?

answer: apparently silver solder

my solution: I built the fuel line from the tank to the pump with 5/16 line with a bubble flair. Using the original nut's, it feels like I get a good connection. The orig nipple is 5/16 on a 1/4 line, and this is the only area with this connection.. i.e. hard line to a non rubber connection.

update: VB has hoses with connectors... should of used that!
