DIY fuel system questions.

I figured I would try and see if I could build a fuel system before I go spending 1300+ on one. I figured I would run the dual super duty pumps for now, as I still have stock injectors and probably won't get bigger injectors in the near future, but would like to be set up for them when the time comes. I found some great information using the old search button, but no one really posts where they buy the fuel line from. I was looking around locally for hyraulic line shops but figured I would ask first if there is a place I could buy online with fittings and all. Figure I would mimic the setups done by others before.
10an from tank to prefilter, dual outlet filter housing
dual 6an from each outlet to superduty pumps (check valves in pumps?)
6an from pumps to duel inlet single outlet filter housing post filter
8an to engine to tie into DI regulated return
6an from regulator to tank (add fuel cooler?)

any help would be great. thanks

When I was looking, I think Jeg's and Summitt has the stuff, but I found cheaper by using some Google-fu.....

i would just stick with 6an all the way through, especially if your stock and staying fairly stock.. its equal to a 3/8s..

be sure to buy a quality regulator, thats the one part i wish i hadn't of cheaped out on in the first place..

The plan is to eventually upgrade to 250/200's. already have the regulator, the larger fuel lines will be linked into my DI reg return.
