Copper is fine for the brake lane but you have to use braided for the fuel. apart from that do what you want.

I have used jubiless and have had no problems with the MOT.

jubilee clips are fine for road rallying but if you want an RAC logbook then you'll need to have proper bulkhead connectors which are expensive and you cannot use jubilee clips inside the cabin, but if you connect under the rear seat and don't have a joint in the cabin then that's ok. You could use hardline tubing from james lister motorsport, it's not very expensive

Personally I would use braded lines with Goodridge fitting's, not the cheapest option, Mine just cost £250.00. The idea of hose clip's inside the cabin with a high pressure fuel pump does't work for me, I know the chance of them coming off is remote but it does happen and being sprayed in Fuel isn;t the best thing!!

Miles, have you got a list of the stuff you got to do yours? I am planning on it in a month or two but it would be good to see how someone else has done it!

make sure its properly clipped and out of harms way (i.e down the centre of the car) and it will be fine for the mot. they wont tolerate fuel lines or brake pipes that are flopping around the car unsecurely.

If you compete or plan to one day, ensure the lines at the very least run inside of the roll cage legs else you will fail scruitineering on the basis that they could be squashed and therefore split in an impact (relevant for on the road as well)
