I'm in the process of restoring Mom and Dad's 1974 Vette and I ran into something I could use some help with:

The master mechanic I hired to give it the full looksee found the gas lines from the tank to the front are showing signs of rot (lines are damp and shouldn't be). I need to hire him out to do this as I'm not messing with this part of the project.

He's cool doing the work, but he needs me to find him the parts. The sites you all mentioned are great for parts, but I'm wondering anyone has a link to a full kit for this kind of thing (lines, connectors, clips hardware etc.) or wouldn't mind leaving me links to the parts I'll need to buy for this whole part of the project. I just don't want him to start up and then run into a situation where he's missing something that I forgot to grab.

 

Thanks in advance!

I'm not personally aware of any of the aftermarket vendors that handle kits like you need. But what you probably need most of all is a Corvette Assembly Manual which you can get from some of the aftermarket Corvette vendors.  It's basically a pictorial step by step manual on building the Corvette. It includes part numbers and assembly instructions.

I think you will have to lift the body up 6" or so or buy a pre-bent fuel line and cut it into 2 or 3 sections.

Found this thread on Digital Corvettes that should help.
