Try a good dealer first.  They used to be able to get new pre-bent 
lines, at least for the type 85.

Otherwise, you're stuck with new line, fittings, a bender and a double 
flare tool.  Any decent auto repair place should have a wide assortment 
of stuff like this they work with (next door is moving away from 
pre-flared and fitted lines to bulk line, fittings, and tools, due to 
the increasing number of different fittings).

What I don't know is where you could go easily to get your fuel line and 
metric fittings, but they have to be out there.  Got a good FLAPS 
nearby?  You know, the kind of place repair shops get their stuff?  Ask 
a good repair shop who they buy from?
