One last shot of the filler neck with the cap removed.
Cut down and rolled beads on the stock filler tube.
Cut down the Tanks filler neck that goes on the tank.
In all, I am pleased with the progress. On the down side, the fender shrunk more than I would have liked. It started to crack when I tried to raise it, so I am going to have to rely on filler. Deciding now whether it should be plastic or maybe the non-toxic lead. Another down side is that I am having trouble making the tubes fit. It may end up with some miter els.
On the plus side, when this is done it is going to be a cool gas filler.
Special thanks to Don and the crew for making the tube beads possible.
Tonight after work, I leaded the cowl. The gap needs opened up a bit. And it will require a little bit of filler. Truth is, I ran out of lead! But, the amount of filler required will be small. The deal is, this looks so much better than it did.
I still have to file the left front fender, but for all practical purposes the leading work I intend to do is done.
That leaves 1 small hairy and 2 large hairries. The small hairy is the fuel filler. The first large hairy is the hood. The final is the paint. The rest of it is work but doable. I am stoked.
