Nothing says I love you like a puddle of gasoline on the floor in the morning. A couple of days after fiddling with the inner fender business mentioned earlier, I walked into the garage to the overwhelming smell of dino juice emanating from a spot directly under the inner fender. That'll show me. Taking the panel back off as well as a secondary inner panel, revealed a sweaty, smelly, series of tubes rusting away. Among them were the fuel delivery line, fuel return line, and brake line. The brake line was perfectly fine, but the fuel lines were messy. Now, there is a right way to repair this and there is the quick-and-dirty way to do it. Obviously I chose the dirty way. Jalopnik in no way advocates what follows; though time-tested, this repair method may result in you randomly catching on fire, but it's cheap, reliable, and fast.
