I'll use some type of weatherstripping to help seal it and prevent any vibrations or exhaust leaks. I also trimmed the allen bolts to length. they are untrimmed in the pics.

The metalwork is for the most part there, but it will need some bondo/ prep work to get it to a "show" status..

I spent some time yesterday finishing up the fuel tank access panel. I purchased a hinge from Lowes and modified it. I welded the hinge to the door but not to the trunk. I used some buttonhead allen screws and welded some nuts on the underside and used one larger one for securing it shut.

I'm also making an access door for my fuel tank/ pump. I like the idea of being able to reach it without having to drop the tank...

I'll need to get some hinges and a latch for keeping it shut.

05-08-2011 11:12 PM Driveshaft safety hoop 7
I had a few hours today to work on the car, so I finished up my top half of the driveshaft safety hoop, and worked on my gas tank access door a bit.

I still need to get some hinges and a latch/ fastener for keeping it closed.

Getting it welded in place. I'm having trouble with weld contamination so I'll have to grind some of it back out and reweld it back in. I thought I had it clean, but apparently, not enough...
