Started on the Monaco
« on: May 12, 2011, 05:07:20 PM »

Got a new sending unit into the tank, now I just have to get the ambition to get the tank back in the car.  I used a 68 B-body unit. It is very close to the original. About 1" longer and just a very slightly different angle at the end. It will work just fine for me. Need to pick up a piece of 5/16 fuel hose and clamps so I can "git er done".  Saturday I go to the wreckers and see if he has some steel wheels I can use.

Set of trim rings and chrome centers for those rims and they will be looking mighty nice.  And good score on the rear trim piece...looks much better.

I thought about it, but that means spending a bunch more money, and I am trying to do this one on the cheap. Got the 4 wheels for $80 bucks. The picture shows the best of the lot. Two of them are not that pretty, and would require blasting. For now just the wheel covers are going on. If I was to go the rings and centres, then I would repaint the wheels B3 to match the car.

Well she's out of the trailer now, and wearing new shoes.  235/70-15 Kelly Charger on clear-out. Would have preferred whitewall, but............. the price was right and I'm cheap.
