06-17-2013 08:05 PM 1930u More Floor Work
Been really busy lately so I've only done a little more work on the close out panel that covers the a/c and heater hose bulk head connector. Since its subject to the passengers feet resting on it I rolled a a couple of beads in it for some added strength. It will bolt in with 8 bolts.

06-04-2013 08:17 PM 1930u false floor section to hide A/C and Heater hoses
I used a bulkhead connector for my a/c and heater hoses. This worked out great. I also made a close out panel to hide it all and still have plenty of leg room. The Plymouth's have a lot more room than say and A or deuce.

05-07-2013 07:54 PM 1930u- Mounting the fuel pump and filter
Over the weekend I did a road trip to Summit Racing and Jegs to pick up more parts. I needed gauges and many other parts and also bought my fuel pump and filter. I originally thought about mounting the fuel pump on a panel in the rumble compartment but really hated the thoughts of having in the car. Instead I installed the pump and the fuel filter on the right frame rail near the middle of the passenger door. I have bought many parts online but the gauges I wanted to see, touch and compare. Iím not going to use a speedo and Jegs by far had the best selection. I really like the old Stewart Warner look but wanted all electric gauges. I picked an old school looking set from Auto MeterÖdefinitely has the late 60ís early 70ís look and thatís my theme.

04-28-2013 08:59 PM 1930u Gas Tank all done
Today I installed the gas tank. It's a Tanks inc. 16 gallon universal unit. I made a couple of L brackets and welded them to my home made x-member. On the final build I will insulate all the tank mounting points with rubber or other suitable material.

I used all the factory tank mounting holes and then sandwiched the tank mounting flanges between my brackets and a gusset. I figured this would be stronger than just washers under the nuts. I also added a couple of mounting straps on the top to stop fore and aft movement too.
