Fueling 78 turbo

Just looking for some info on fuel cells and stainless fuel line setups to eventually go into my 78 turbo. I've been planning right from the get go of losing the original metal tank and replacing it with a fuel cell. Just wondering if anyone has ever done this and how tough it will be to run and hook up fuel lines to the CIS setup (am keeping the CIS but upgrading to the larger plenum setup out of a VW/Audi). Any info or advice would be great, thanks!

I put a fuel cell in our C900 race car. All I did was mount the pump under the car with a large hose clamp. Then ran the suction hose to the fuel cell. Suposedly the fuel pump will not last long mounted outside the tank from what I have been told, but I looked under my sons 924 Porsche and it has the same fuel pump as the SAAB uses mounted externally from the factory. Have you thought about using a plastic tank from a later SAAB in your car? It would be alot simpler for something that's going to be driven on the street. Just a thought.
