Vapor Lock

What have you guys done to prevent vapor lock on extremely hot days?

Added a electric fuel pump on my 76 that vapor locked often.

With the stock hard line, I'd slice hose with an ID aboutthe same size as the OD of the hard line to add some insulation. On the bronco, I have straight rubber hose from the pump to the carb and I went with as thick of hose as I could find. A carb spacer also works for fuel boil.

I used plumbing insulation around the fuel line, but this doesn't do well close to hot parts.
