Fuel pressure steel braided line

I'm getting ready to put gauges along the a pillar. For my fuel pressure gauge. Where can I find the steel braided line and the fittings I need for the best deal. I didn't want to mount directly to the engine because of vibration. What's your guys opinion. Just mount it or extend it away from engine.
Thanks

Go to your local hose shop or hydraulic shop and ask who makes their hoses. Go there and explain what you are looking for. M12 1.5 male adapter to a hose with 1/8" NPT female. Get the hose about 42" long because alot of people complain that the 30" hose that comes with most kits is too short. I had mine made with a 42" hose for about $40 and it is perfect.

I just made mine with diesel rated goodyear 1/4 inch fuel line, I got the glowshift port adapter and used brass barb fittings.

Made mine for around 12 bucks

That's what I use. It's nice because you can get the pressure sender away from the engine vibration. I have mine tucked up near the ABS module.

For those who don't want to hassle with having one made, this is the way to go.

Another nice thing about the Sinister kit is the braided line has a clear vinyl sheath over it to prevent abrasion. Braided line can tear up whatever it comes into contact with in pretty quick order.

with the sinister kit, do i need to get an adapter fitting for it to thread into the test port. im guessing the 45 degree end goes to the fuel housing and the other to the sending unti, so im thinking that i need M12 1.5 male to 1/8 npt female?

the line comes with everything you need. The angled end is the corect size for the test port and the other is correcct for the sending unit. The test port end is a tight fit to get the wrench into though.
