Fuel lines (generic, non bent) are a dime a dozen at Napa and other parts stores, as are the tools one might use to bend them. Have you thought about going that route? It's actually pretty easy, and sort of enjoyable. I replaced the brake lines on my Fiat, and the principle is the same.

As for a tank, I'd recommend one from a junk yard. Is your tank rusted completely through?

Fill out your profile and maybe someone will tell you of there's a good one near you.

My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
