    I do need more storage....

    Well, we have the new engine dropped in place.











    ....and she decided on fuel injection over the 770 CFM Holley (still new in the box). Of course this meant and O2 sensor bung on an already finished H-pipe. The bung that came with the FI Tech kit matched well to the outside radius of the exhaust pipe, but was rectangular in shape, and included a gasket for a "clamp installation"... As we aren't having any of that nonsense, the bung found it's way into the lathe, where a round outer perimeter will serve better for our TIG welded installation..





    And after some touch up at the powder coaters....











    Next, our arm rest enclosures for the rear seat needed a base for the padded arm rests. So Jake used the Go Kart slick to add some radius to 14 gauge cold rolled steel in order to match the enclosure...











    .....and trimmed to fit....







    These will be held in place with Mopar style door panel retainers, so we can still have ready access for any future maintenance on window mechanisms.

    I agree, as always nice work and thanks for the sharing of pics / techniques.

    Although I question the really short steering wheel arrangement! *-)

    That looks so nice. The Fitech was probably a good decision for her I'd say. Nice fix on the bung.

    Progress on the wagon...



    Mike got the new fuel tank all prepped with the fuel pump...










    Tank mocked up so we can do test fit/fabrication of the filler neck down to the tank...











    An elbow will be needed to join these two together.







    The local NAPA store had some smooth elbow exhaust pipe that we used to fabricate the complete filler neck, all the pieces were TIG welded together, and Dana powder coated the assy black for us.







    Bracket we fabricated for bolting to the floor flange.















    Next, the drip rail area was scuffed well and the car inverted so we can seal the bottom of the drip rail to the top of the quarter area. This is using the self leveling sealer, so we needed to counter the gravity effect.











    Next time we'll get the top side done..

    Seeing the car flipped: my first thought is to install the headliner. Undoubtedly too much else needs to be done yet. Pity, it looks like it would make for a convenient, easy install.

    We found in painting the inside that positioned on the side works well, you step through the window openings straight to the floor.

    We found a flat spot in the drip rail that needed to match the rest, found a suitable worn jaw pair of Vise grips that was ripe for modification.

    Very nice! Do you mark or label these when you make them to help identify them for future use? Or do you just remember what each was used for?

    I have a good collection of the modified ones going, so far no labels. Keeps people guessing!
