Brief Description:  Fuel Lines from Bonaco 1

My fuel lines from Bonaco arrived. They now come with plastic coating. You can't see it in the photos but there is plastic tubing over the steel to avoid any chaffing.

The Bonaco fuel lines have fittings on the ends so I had to enlarge the holes in the brackets on the front of the wing spar. To do that I had to buy a 90 degree drill tool so I could hold the big tapered bit. The shaft on my tapered bit is about 3/8 not quarter so my angle drill wounldn't hold it.

It was a little tough enlarging the holes but I got it done.

Then there are some bushings Vans sells for 3/4 holes. I had to make the holes bigger than 3/4 for the fittings to fit thru but the bushings till work. I might glue them in.
