Progress with the fuel lines
Next, I have to run the fuel lines back to the rear of the car where I will have to mount the Ford F-150 high pressure fuel pump and plumb in a surge tank. My plans for the surge tank are a little bit unusual and I plan on using a couple check valves. I'll probably have to order some of the parts from McMaster-Carr. They're a pretty popular source for unusual parts like that. I also plan on ordering a metal fire extinguisher bracket from them. I've been getting a little nervous about the plastic mounting bracket I had on the fire extingusher that I kept under the Dart's dash, and McMaster's prices on metal mounting brackets are a lot less expensive than many racing shops.
Yeah, I know APC has a chrome-plated fire extinguisher with a metal bracket that isn't too expensive. It's also BC rated, meaning that it is designed to handle handle small gasoline fires or electrical fires, but not burning upholstery. What use is that unless you have a race car with a gutted interior?

On the other hand, if it's a different APC, never mind.
