Default how have you run fuel lines

how have u guys routed your fuel lines as there's not enough room where they normally go up inbetween the subrame and bulkhead on the passanger side

My fuel lines (SPi Cooper) ran in the normal place with my old Watsons frame from what I remember. With my Custom Minis frame they run in the same place except I had to slightly bend them as they caught against the lower floor mount.

Oh, I see what you mean now Mark. I actually ran the metal pipes to the bulkhead then have rubber hoses running through the round holes near the rack into the engine bay. It's a bit awkward and realise if the subframe needed to be removed, I would have to remove these pipes too.
