Default What's the lowdown on the fuel line up front leaking?

First off.. If there is a thread can yall point it out to me?
Bought the car knowing there is an obvious fuel leak.
Back by the turbo smell is horrible.
Inside the car... Gawd.
I saw there is a new line I can get for $44 on Amazon. But I don't trust shipping small, thin, easily crushed tubes overseas.
I haven't been able to find any pics on Google that show the problem.
Something about a short flexible hose that cracks?
Is it the same problem and part for NA and Turbo?
This should be something that can easily be fixed with new high pressure fuel line and clamps shouldn't it?
If I have to order the part I'll do it now.
But if it's something I can home fix I'll wait till the car gets here on Thursday and after I clean the engine.

Here you go. I've done this on both a 2005 GT and my current 2007 turbo convertible.

Some folks complained because the "improvement" won't meet racing standards. Like I was going to race a PT Cruiser.

Awesome.
Thank you.
I know what to look for now.
Easy fix. Looks like it might take an hour to do.
Spend more time getting the hose and clamps.. Lol

Look for other leaks as well. If you follow my build thread further you will see that on my 2007 Vert I needed to fix a crack in the fuel injector rail too.

The fuel line has been replaced. Dry as a bone. Looks like it's leaking around the fuel rail by the #4 cylinder.
The Schrader valve area is dry on the end of the rail.
I thought it may have had a oil leak at the valve cover, cause I seen wetness under the air cleaner box. But it is fuel.
Thinking it may be a bad o ring or cracked rail.
They will be delivering the car to me on Friday. So I'll for sure know then.
