Seems to be very good in quality and fit. I am very pleased with it as I have been watching for a used one for several years and when I heard they were finally reproducing them I was flippin out man.

Going to begin with the body and paint now.

05-19-2012 05:18 PM New Gas Tank
Finally got a new gas tank, sending unit , sealing ring and seal.Straps too.Put it in last weekend. The original actually wasnt really bad, just some light surface rust , and a few dents. The filler neck was messed up where the cap went on, so instead of spending hours, sanding, repairing the neck, trying to pop dents...etc....a new unit was procured.
I got it from OPGI and that was a smart choice. The metal is as heavy gauge as the original, neck was soldered in tight,i am very pleased with the fit and look . It looks just like an OE tank. I also put on new straps and a new sending unit, gasket and sealing ring.
My thinking was not to waste time on the old one it would have been time consuming and costly to repair it. Not to mention the peace of mind a new tank gives.
Note the nifty plate frame.
Also last picture bump.

I put these stainless tips on after the duals were finished. They came about a week afterwards.
You can see the areas that have some filler in them. The drivers door was replaced years ago and Earl Scheib must have painted it, as the car lot sticker on the trunklid was painted right over. This car is giving up its secrets pretty hard. Also the right front fender was replaced at one time as it is marimba red underneath.
The passenger side has a few scrapes and dings but only a few spots of filler that I can detect. Of course it will all need to be removed and refinished before paint gain.
