I started with a little touch up paint, then after it dried, I installed the fuel gauge sending unit. Here's the tank all ready to go into the car (or so I thought at the time):
|My camera's flash does not agree with the tank. It appears satin black in person||.|
|What is with the weird reflections!|
The fuel filler assembly has to be installed before the tank is in place. Argh! So off comes the tank. However, I didn't have enough room underneath the car to maneuver it into place with the filler in the correct position, so had to loosen the clamp and rotate the filler tube 180-degrees to fit the tank into place. Of course, this required removing the left rear fender (only held on by 5 bolts at this point, so an easy task.) Then, once in position, I turned the filler up into place and tightened up the clamp.
Well that took a bit longer than expected, but I'm glad it is done. Off to watch the super bowl!
