I decided to use the Powder Coat gun I got for Christmas a couple of years ago from my wife. Picture 1 show's what I started with. I wire brushed the spindle and caliper bracket to remove the surface rust and cleaned it with lacquer thinner. I sprayed the powder on and let bake for 20 minutes in the oven at 400°. Picture 3 shows the parts back on the car.

Here are pictures with the tank straps in. I'll trim the sharp edges and make it look a little better.

Because of the odd shape of the rear crossmember, I had to use some rectangle tubing and cut it to fit in the crossmember. Once I welded these in the tank brackets I made could sit flush with the crossmember.

Rather than spend $800 on a stainless steel replacement tank for my car, I took some measurements and found that a 16 gallon tank for a 1953/54 Chevy would fit. I purchased it from "Tanks" for less than $300. I made some brackets to mount it in the original location. These pictures are when I was fitting the tank.

12-22-2009 06:33 PM 1933 Chevy Cabriolet Brake Lines
I bent and flared my brake lines. The lines run from the master cylinder mounted under the drivers floor through a residual valve and to the front. My friend Clayton made some pieces out of bar stock that we welded into the chassis so the brake lines would pass through the chassis and not over it. The rear lines run out through a residual valve and a proportioning valve.
