02-03-2013 07:19 PM fuel filler neck 2
This weekend I finished up the gas tank filler neck area. I had to made a recess in my box to clear the trunk latch. I also built another box in the trunk floor (really using up the last of my old original passenger door skin) to locate the original filler neck rubber sleeve and bracket. I shortened the sleeve and will use a clamp to help seal off any fumes.

I also started the fuel filler neck. since I had recessed my tail panel, and the fact that I have always wanted ot add those anti slosh/ siphon valve into the tank to prevent slosh, and am annoyed with how the modern fuel pumps don't work on older cars, the natural conclusion was to update my car with a modern filler neck. I liberated one from an Astro in a junkyard and began hacking away.

I'm also working on building a box for the filler neck to reside in, and hope to continue next weekend

01-28-2013 10:49 PM rear bumper 1
Over the holiday break I started a couple of smaller projects- the rear bumper and fuel filler neck.

The rear bumper actually needs to be widened to fit my car, and I didn't have an extra. I narrowed my brackets and it sits much closer. I have now sourced one and can resume that soon

I got the other side installed this weekend, as well as worked on fixing my passenger fender lower area. There's a lot of issues here, and I'd replace the fender altogether if I hadn't already modified the wheel opening area so much.

I started to make my rear brake vents by welding in the scoops I made the other weekend. I used some metal rode to add thickness and strength to the quarter panel as I didn't want to leave it as a single piece of metal.

I hope to get the other side in next weekend.
