How's this so far? ('59 18'er)

We just cleaned up the stove and re-installed in the cabinet. I ran 3/8" soft copper through the belly and hooked it to the shut-off in the cabinet. At the belly I connected the stove 3/8" to a Tee that takes 1/2" to the tanks and capped one 3/8" for future fridge hook up. I ran the 1/2" pipe and attached to the belly, one spot I got attachment to the frame.

Will I regret not protecting the copper with something? Should I ground the copper to the frame somehow?

Haven't yet hooked to tanks to test for leaks, still need regulator / pigtail setup. Just wanted to get some eyes on to see if ya'll think I didn't screw up too bad yet???

Clearance change

If it were me, I would do one slight change. The line from the "T" to the stove. I would place a 90 degree bend in this line a few inches from the T. This would allow the T to be flat against the belly skin and not hang down. I can invision all sorts of road debris snagging the T since it is the lowest point. As for covering/shielding the copper, my trailer has the factory copper running under the trailer w/o any shielding and it is fine.

Thanks Thomas! I had a similar concern. Maybe if I have enough slack in the line I can pull the pipe down and with a pipe bender put a 90 like you said....
