good idea or bad idea?

I wanted to protect the rubber fuel line in my 88 yj by sliding over flexable metal conduit they sell for electrical lines.

So you want to protect something flammable by adding something electrically conductive?

I used some left over C4 to mold a protective sleeve around my fuel lines and plug wires. No problems yet....

I know you guys are just kidding around but some of us here may be still sensitive about the bombing.. Please keep this in mind when making comments. Thanks

Back to the original question.

I would say some spiral wrap would be a good for protecting those lines from cuts.

we used it in the Air Force on fuel and hydraulic lines. tough stuff.

Mind you, it can be tedious to install lol but it works.

Some of us are still sensitive about HMMWV's blowing up too. We use humor to help us deal with traumatic situations. Show me your shrapnel scars and I will be happy to show you mine.
