Need advice running 3 fuel lines & brake line on driver side frame rail...

I got my issues straightened out with inlinetube.com and I have all the right lines now. 3/8" send, and 5/16" return and vapor lines.

My CJ is an '83, so from the factory it had the fuel send line on the passenger side like most CJs, but I ordered a fuel line for a CJ with a factory 304, and I remembered after it got here that stock CJs with a 304 had the fuel send line on the drivers side. I'm a little nervous about proximity to the exhaust, but I can always put together a heat shield if I need to, I guess.

Has anyone tackled this on a rebuild that has a clever solution for bundling the fuel lines and attaching them to the frame? It's a little crowded over there... A pic would be extremely helpful!

Thanks!

Here's the current mess:



I've got some of these insulated clips (left) to attach a single line to the frame. Should I use a bunch of the "s" shaped clips to attach the lines to each other? Is that enough?

You could look at pics of a YJ, they had all the lines on drivers side, and an OEM hard line that looped under the engine over to the fuel pump. that is why the CJ setup is better, but if need be you could follow the YJ setup.

Thanks for the tip on looking at YJ routing. That was really helpful... I found this:

Any idea where the best place is to look for those line clips?

Here's what I ended up doing. I used the insulated single line clips I had to attach everything on the drivers side... It's not beautiful, but it is all secure and it works for my purposes. I hope the e-brake cable will pass normally.
