Whoa there cowboy. I used 100% flexible Stainless Braided teflon lines from gas tank to engine and back again. Ridiculously easy to route and install. I only needed a minimum of fittings and it looks great.
I get it that the general feeling is that the hard lines are a bit more resistant to damage from a rock or what not, but the SS hose is VERY strong IMHO. Also, My understanding is the Teflon hose is very resistant to degradation and should last a very , very long time (as long as you use a good brand).
I know there are diverging thoughts on this topic, but I just want to get it out there that running flexible lines the whole way is fine too., at least I think so.
Here is a pic from a zillion years ago when I was mocking up my lines....they are just taped in place with electrical tape but it gives you an idea of how this went in
