    today i was rolling my fender and cutting the front fender to accomedate my 18" rims [ just for my daily drive to work] after i'm all done i start to warm up the car to test drive...


    ..i smelled gas; so i look to the back of the car, and i notice a huge puddle of fuel on the floor so i go undernieth and the hard line coming from the body through a black ruber sleave is leaking...


    WTF can i do?
    can i remove the stock return line and run another hose?


    this is after the same cousin that came from peurto rico last time [when i fucked up the rex] came to live over here and he is staying with me..now this shit ..that mother fucker is bad luck..... no the rex is down AGAIN

    are there any draw backs to this??
