Started on the fuel tank. Looks like Bubba couldn't find the right tank.



I've used this trick before, but it's a good trick so here it is again: LED fuel filter. Need a VW weenie to school me on where the fuel inlet line runs, it looks like there's too much heat in that neighborhood.



Made a 3-bolt flange for the stinger, but I don't think those nuts are gonna come off.

IIRC the fuel line comes in from the drivers side. Been a long damn time though...

Another short day, but a good one.



Fuel tank installed, sending unit wired. How do these luggage compartments get so nasty?



Tool box and helmet in the back



Steering wheel



Speaking of wheels, I widened the other two VW wheels. These tuck under the fenders a lot better than the Torq-Thrusts, but I'm torn. Anyone got an opinion either way?



And that pesky fuel line is hooked up. That finishes off the engine.

I have no opinion about the wheels, but I'm curious why there's a Colt 45 can in there.

And to post to mention that you're goofy.

Now THAT is a proper looking floorpan.

The kick plates are still clean though.

Ha. Because chrome coil-covers cost money. You younguns with your coil-on-plug ignition will never know the joy of wrapping a beer can around your coil.

Oh, and Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude, I noticed the kick panels earlier. I'll take care of it.

My Datsun got its spark from a Keystone can.

Those 8-oz Coors cans were the perfect size, but marked you as a Coors drinker.

Yea, another little trick, at least for trail riding, is if you manage to spring a leak in your radiator pepper from a pepper mill will plug it long enough to get you off the trail Oh and Stu, I LOVE IT! The beer can is just great!

We used to torture the kid at the shop by asking him to check the coolant in the Corvair

Got to rust out under the battery and cut a piece of 3/8 ply to keep it from dragging on the road, and a red plastic roller gas pedal.
