I had them on my turbo fox body and my garage wreaked. This is a big problem I your garage is attached to your house.

You want to run Teflon PTFE fuel lines. Preferably the line ends should be machine crimped to avoid any chance of leaks. Most shops I contacted didn't know about this problem. It's become more prevalent with E10 and E15 pump gas b/c the ethanol eats the lines.

Good luck, car looks great.
Thank you for the concern and advice since you have dealt with the problem through first-hand experiences!

We are using Russell "Pro-Classic" lines, which was Nate's first recommendation as soon as we started talking about doing the lines, I did plenty of research before buying and everyone seemed to have very good experiences with these lines using E85!
