e30 fuel line leaking



hello my e30 (m20b25) fuel hard lines are leaking badly when I start the car, I was just wondering how much would this cost to fix or is it worth doing a DIY? Is there a way I can replace em with high pressure plastic hose or steel braided hoses?

thanks

A hydraulic shop can cut, bend, and flare new lines for you.

You can replace with any fuel injection hose of equal ID.

update!! brought it to my mechanic and replaced with rubber hoses instead was a $150 job. I think is worth it rather than a DIY.
