stoopid fuel leak.

For a couple weeks now I've been smelling fuel whenever I started my car. Mind you I haven't been driving it, because it's not registered so I was just running it at home.
I decided today to find the source of my fuel leak. I searched for about 15 minutes or so and didn't find anything so I started the car and searched while it was running.
I immediately discovered a hose toward the firewall with a pinhole spraying all over the place. It got down on the ground to see how bad the leak was and within the minute my car was running a huge puddle developed under the car and it was leaking right onto my exhaust!!!!!
I shut the car down and attempted to reach the hose. It's like a jungle by that firewall and I couldn't get to it at all, or even tell where it was running to and from.
I have a lot of work ahead of me tomorrow.

^ the scary part is I drove her twice while smelling the fuel before I discovered the leak. I"m damn lucky it didn't catch on fire. I would have certainly been sick.

done! some 5/16 fuel injector hose clamps, 16'' of 5/16 fuel injector hose and a lot of patience.

I had to remove the intake so I could squeeze under the intake manifold to change the hose. it was the return line from the Fuel pressure regulator. The hose was cracked in about 5 places and it was a major pain to change it. that skunk2 IM sits about 2-3 inches closer to the firewall than stock because of the longer runners. takin up just enough room to make my life miserable this morning. It's done and I drove the piss outta that car today lol
