So the fuel filler line was a REDO as well

Used filler line for sale !! Cheap, Beautiful!!

Purchased flexible fuel filler line form "Filler Neck Supply" .  The line was wrapped in Heat reflective fiberglass tape.

The over powering smell of gasoline in my shop is gone!!

Before the engine goes back in the fuel filler system needed a REDO!

Oops I turn the gas cap and it falls off.

I know what ya mean, I had mine in the air for so long I forgot how low to the ground it was supposed to be.  Was about two weeks before I got used to it being down there.  hee hee.

Looking good man!

Thanks,
Coop

Will have to cut the sheet metal and fabricate a new piece so the alternator doesn't rub .

Did a test fit of the engine today.  Need to move the upper engine mounts over a couple of inches.

I got the Rodney Dickman poly mounts and the FerioRog 3800 engine and trans mounts in and mounted to the cradle!  Nice products from both!!

I'm really liking the Lizard Skin, it so easy to use!!! Final application of the ceramic heat shield at 4am this morning :)  The firewall has a real solid sound to it now.  Just have to top coat the product once it has cured.

Made some sheet metal pieces for the stretch area and sprayed the fire wall with Lizard Skin - sound.  I really like this product, so much easier than dyna matt or an equivalent product.  Will spray the Lizard Skin Heat shield tonight.
