I feel your pain. When we brought the wifes 69 out of bondage we started by pulling out the tank. I bought a repop since the car had not run in 27 yrs. well, that was a disaster. Tank was not quite the same, I had to put sheet rubber on top of the tank for it to fit right. One of the crappy bolts they gave me galled and stripped out. and I ended up cleaning up the old straps and using them. Take your time and you'll get it.
69 Firebird Convertible (wifes car since 1979) Goldenrod Yellow, 350, plain Jane Car was stored in garage since 1990
I need help, if anyone see's I'm going down the wrong road--Straighten me out!
