She is not alone.In the yard is a '68 Poara 500 Canadian model 318/727 2.76 gears.Very basic car..
Other cars mentionable is a '57 Chebbie,'66 Toronado,and a slew of old Dodge trucks--some with big block powerplants.
.One of the employees is an old car nut and tends to hang on to the old schtuff.

Next on the list is to turn my attention back onto the BoaB itself.
I pretty much have everything I need at this point to keep me busy for the remainder of this year.
Stay tuned!

Looking at the donor car , I'll say it again. Mopar rust is the worst
rust. At least the donor car gave you some good parts and saved you
some cash.

My pooter internet server is coming to fix the modem or router whatever.it conks out on me.
That got me off my butt and work on the car.
I cleaned up a section of the belly of the car to get ready for the tank.
I removed as much of the flash rust as possible.Epoxy primer was applied to bare metal and then semi gloss black paint.
Based on what I had seen on this car the whole belly is painted black from factory except the overspray on the sides from the rockers and 1/4 trunk extensions.I will try to reproduce this the best I can.
I could have gone nuts and detailed this area but nobody will see it once the tank is installed.
I also finished up the tail panel that is hidden behind the bumper.
Both are not not show quality but at least I know it is clean and rust free as well.

I am gradually working my way to the front of the car in regards to the belly.Fuel line will be removed and replaced after the cleaning/painting.
The brake line is already installed but I was thinking about removing it for the belly scraping.

i didn't know you could have sending units fixed.
Mine was leaking fuel around the feed tube right at the large round tab that fills the hole in the tank.It is a spot that does get soldered when built new.The solder went away from time and age.
It was resoldered and tested.Works.
I was just lucky,I guess.
I tried repairing the old sending unit prior to this this one.
It simply did not read.I took it apart and tried soldering the teenie tiny wires on the rheostat inside the unit.That attempt  failed and was tossed into the garbage can.
