Default Fuel lines, gauges, fittings, etc. What do you have?

So I won a set of 460cc RX7 injectors off ebay and they are on the way to injector rehab. I plan on calling tuner toys tomorrow morning to order the dual feed rail. Now, I'd really like to add a in-line fuel gauge that stays under the hood. I was looking on summit's site and saw the wide selection of fittings and such. So I started adding what I thought I needed to make a setup;

(2) 90deg / 6an hose - 6an female
(1) gauge fitting / 6an male -6an male
(1) fuel pressure gauge / 0-100psi
(1) 6ft of stainless braided / hose 6an
(4) 6an female - 3/8 hose fittings

Then I realized I didn't know WTF to do at the hard lines.....

I just did some searching and read about 5an lines that need to be flared, and cut the hard lines, etc. I'm not looking to add another "project" to my list, I just thought this would be sorta easy. I'm curious to know what you guys have that are using an in-line fuel gauge. I'm not worried about my lines not being strong enough and so on and so forth, I just figured this is how I would do the lines.

If anything I'd at least like to replace the stock fuel lines with new ones and add some type of in-line gauge. And if that's the case, then I suppose I'll have to go with the barbed fittings from tuner toys for the rail.
