gas tank and hangers today, moving tank over to allow more room for duels. repairing the tank itself, inside and out. Question ; will epoxy primer ( Nason by Dupont) work to line and seal the inside of the tank? I have some left over from the body work, the tank already has had the "ospho'' treatment inside. Will the epoxy primer bond to the treated inside of the tank ?

Excellent job on the chop!


Aside: I hate photobucket. A lot of the image links posted earlier in the thread now come up with "Page Not Found".

Hope you do something to those raw edges of the cut -- you could amputate something with those.

up date on the chop

brakes are hooked up, steering is done, started on the wiring.... installing the harness from the '85 parts car leaving out the 'lean burn' crap . It's working good for connecting the electric seats and windows, but pain in ***** to connect to the old dash ! Am using the '85 318 wiith a dist and modual from 69 to 72 , but having a hard time finding the 'pigtail' harness to connect the two . Any suggestions ?

wiring location ???

so, I'm putting the battery in the trunk , have to run a battery cable forward. Also want to re-route the harness that usually goes along the door sills(seats and taillites ). I'd like to put them on or along the tranny hump, but then I'd have to splice and make them longer.... BUT... I've been told put them UNDER the car and run them in or along the frame rail. Any suggestions ??? Road salt would not be an issue, just maybe water and mud ????????

You should keep the battery cables out of the car for sure.Water and dirt won't hurt them.
As for other wiring under the carpet, should be okay as long as you don't use oversized fuses.
