ridiculously_necessary mike suggested mountign the filter to the alternator or ac compressor bolts, make a bracket. i dont know how vibration would bother it, if at all, but thats a great open space and probably what i will do.

I like the idea, but I'm not sure that I'd have enough room for the and post pump fuel filters. I guess I could put the pre-pump filter down by the pollak valve, but the post pump filter would have to go under the hood somewhere.

I'm going to look into this idea some more, but I'm pretty sure I'd have to order both the hose and JIC fittings online. The main thing is I'm not sure how much hose I'm going to need yet. Guess I need to get everything mounted and take some measurements.

I was planning to use as much of the stock steel line as possible (valley to the heads and between the engine bay and the new fuel pump on the frame) and splice in with rubber hose for a couple of short stretches where necessary. Most of the rubber hose would be located on the frame where I have to splice in the new filters and electric fuel pump, but there would be a short stretch in the engine bay to go from the stock steel line to the banjo bolt fitting.
