Getting back to the restoration and have a few questions:
1. What brand of brake/fuel lines would be recommended?
2, Plastic or steel fuel tank?
3. At this point I am planning on running the stock 258 but was thinking of possibly using a Holley fuel injection system versus a carburetor?
Thank you,

I got my Inline Tube lines while they were having a sale. I haven't installed them yet but they look great.

Inline tubes here as well.

I jumped up to the 20g poly tank, and I'm glad I did.

I like fuel injection, but also prefer the simplicity of a nice manual choke, so fuel delivery is a toss-up for me.

When moving to 20 gallons does it reuse rollover valve and liquid check valve like 15 gallon? Or are they built into tank top?

With fuel injection you’ll soon forget about a choke.

They're built in, but you still need to route a line to the charcoal canister or find another way to vent.

It's funny, though, I've been injected in one form or another for 8 years now, and the current CEL headaches often having me wishing for something simpler. The one I can't seem to get rid of is p0101 - I feel like there's either a leak I can't track down or the air filter I have is starving the engine for air. It only pops up when I engine brake or have it above 3K RPM for too long.

Thanks for all of the information, was also thinking of going disc brakes in the rear any recommendations?
