Fuel line tubing

Well, my order from ACS came yesterday, but I was wiped out and cashed in early, so I didn't get any work done. Today, however, I got the outboard fuel line bent up for the left side. I figured I would get this right on the first try, since it's just a mirror image of the right side; but it wasn't meant to be. The drawing was fine, but my brain wasn't working and I made two mistakes while bending. Arg! The third piece fit very well.

Here's a shot from outside the fuselage. I also ordered more grommets for where this line passes through the tank support bracket.
