Help me understand 68 fuel line routing

My current 68 3-piece fuel line was a piece meal job by the previous owner. I am trying to replace it with an original one. I am looking at the picture below of a fuel line and having a hard time understanding as to how exactly the routing would work out. Why are both of the ends of the line on the same side...or is that just an illusion in the picture.

Re: Help me understand 68 fuel line routing

Matt,
The bottom part in that picture goes from the outer frame and up into the motor compartment with a helper to make sure nothing gets scratched and makes it easyer to rout it threw. Next the person under the car will start to feed it back and over the rear end and at the same time try to straighten it out up to the floor pan, once its at the gas tank. Keep it bent until you proceed under and to the rear, there will be some twisting or turning and bending but not much. I did it with 1/2 SS lines and that was tough.

The man thing is start forward and work your way back, but only straighten it out once you have it over the rear end, this makes it alot easyer.

I NEED TO HIT THE LOTTERY

The curved bend on the right side of the picture is a shipping bend and must be straightened out.It should have tags on it showing you were to straighten it.Bruce

Ahh...shipping bend - that makes sense. Thanks for the tips on how to install, I was hoping there were some.

AhhhI ran ( 2 ) 1/2 stainless lines next to eachother. Needless to say they didn't like running next to eachother. What a PITA.
