I am about ready to pull the motor to clean up the engine bay and weld in the rear scott-rod panels to smooth it out. I would like to run the fuel lines through it in some kind of clean/easy way. Can I just cut the hard lines down a little further, flare/double flare the end and get some kind of fitting to adapt the flare to a -6 line? I am new to all these fittings and looked around but couldn't seem to find anything... I would like to run the -6 to a bulkhead/firewall fitting and then just connect on the other side with a straight -6 connection unless there is a better way?

do u have a bending and flairing tool?

hard pipe is easy AFTER you get it all bent and flared to fit.
braided hose is easy but you have to get it all made up with all the connectors.....

I guess EZ is relative. what on a SN is easy?? :p

It's not double flare. . It's an expensive tool. But it can be done

same tool I borrowed from autozone to do my brake lines right? Not afraid of that by any means just wasn't sure what the fitting was to go from the flared fuel line to a -6 connector. I have some bulkhead -6 connectors for this that once the panel is in place I can just drill a hole and use a -6 end to connect to both sides. I want to cut the lines down shorter, run a 6-10" piece of braided line I have left over to the bulk head fittings unless I can get the hard lines to mount up to the bulk head fittings but I thought it would be easier to use the scrap hose I have left over for a short run.

As far as I know they only have the double flair. Fuel usually uses push connect. . But for aftermarket AN fitting you might be able to double flair not sure.

The Mastercool flaring tool does usually come with the dies to make quick connect fittings, but it does not come with the dies for flaring AN.

A standard double flare uses a 45* flare, where AN is a 37* flare.

after some thought I am going to see if I can just going to try to make a couple small bends to bring the ends down to the point they would be below the panel.
