Fuel lines

Im trying to put braided fuel lines on my 95 and was wondering as long as the car isnt running will gas spew from the hose. And I did open the gas cap to let off any pressure

No. I wouldn't think it would. As long as the car is running and the fuel pump is not on it won't. It will drip a little bit no matter what cause of the excess gas still in the regulator and hoses.

It may still have pressure in the lines. The fuel pump has a ball in it that holds pressure in the fuel system. Opening the gas cap will not relieve any pressure in the lines as far as the high pressure line goes. All in all, The return line will not have pressure but the high pressure line may still hold pressure.

The chrome and red anodized just look better than black rubber

Getting true racing style braided lines are way more durable than the rubber 1s. There basically rubber lines wrapped in a plastic coat an the stainless braid. I use them jus to keep from rubbing holes in my lines. But its more preference still

If anything they're less durable when they get cut the steel braided section cuts the rubber line ...
