Got lots going on today...the wife is up in Georgia on a business trip!
Received Hedman ceramic shorty headers yesterday and stear and gear box should arrive Monday, but that engine bay stuff will have to wait. I'm preparing for March 7 florida mopar nats, so no time to waste.
Today I have the rear end lifted as high as I can get it. Removed the rear valance and leaky fuel tank last night, and now have lots of room down there to sit up underneath and go after any rust, so I guess you could say I'm "restoring" the rear underbody.
Last week I bought the spectra premium fuel tank at Chryco's suggestion, and several cans and rattle cans of eastwoods rust converter, the encapsulator, and the chassis black. I'm brushing out any loose rust, but its really only minor surface rust, and a few small spots in the corners of the scaly stuff. Replacing most of the rubber lines and gaskets while I'm down there too, and maybe the rear shocks.
I noticed the old tank has what looks like a box attached under the inside top of the tank. The new tank doesnt. No baffles which I expected either.
I wonder if that box, which comes down about 4 inches from the top, interfered with my sender float?
