    Filler Neck on and tank installed. Ran the fuel lines over to the hard lines. Where they pass close to the exhaust I have covered them with Raceflux Kevlar heat sleeves. I also used some of their dual line brackets that I mounted to the tank to keep them hose runs neat. I think it turned out pretty good. Bought a new Standt gas cap. You can see that the fill neck isn't perfect. When it was made apparently they got the orientation of the bend and the flap/vents a bit off so when installed the flap and vents don't sit perfectly straight at 12 o'clock. Since it won't effect funtionality I just kept it. Tanks Inc offered to exchange it but I didn't want to wait for a new one to come. Sorry for the crappy pics.

    Got a gift delivered. Here is a preview. Once I get the fuel system finished and the exhaust installed it will be on to this project.

    I like those line brackets you used on your fuel lines. Looks nice and neat.

    Has the weather been keeping progress at a stand still? Anxiously awaiting your updates.

    I would like to blame it on that. I have been spending a lot of time shoveling lately as I’m sure you can relate. Other than that, the garage is heated so the delay is still just more life slowing progress. Still working exhaust and fuel.

    I did manage to get the pcv drain redone to get a little more clearance to the back of the ac compressor mounting bracket. Had to shorten the hose about 1/2” and change the an to hose fitting at the oil pan end from a 75 degree fitting to a 90 degree fitting.

    after 3 purchases I finally have a fuel filter mounting bracket I think I can make work and I’m happy with. Still planning to put the filter in-line on the outboard RH subframe rail.
