    Corroded fuel pipe

    Anyone had to replace fuel lines due to pin holes? Mines rusted around the rear passenger door, can I cut the bad bit out and jubilee clip some rubber hose on to the metal fuel line? Will it stay on or could the pressure blow it off? Or go a garage an see if they can make a metal one? thanks
