Default DA50 first gasser questions

Hi all,

I'm working hard to get my new H9 80" Cap 232 ready for spring......which I think I missed judging by todays temps in sunny SC. This is my first gasser and I have a couple of questions;

1. I bought a 24 oz. Dubro fuel tank and some large diameter gas fuel line. The fuel line fits well on the engine barbed fitting but has lots of slop on the tanks brass tubes. I sure don't want the line to come off in the fusulage! How do I work this out?

2. My cap has foam on the top of the fusulage down the whole length of the plane. Should I seal this foam, at least from the cockpit forward, with something to protect it from the gas? I seem to remember that foam and gas is not a good mix. What should I use?
