Because of the holiday season, we had a short week on the restoration project. We cleaned-up and painted the old gas tank bracket, cut some new anti-squeak strips, and prepared and installed a new gas tank. The old gas tank was too deteriorated to re-use, so we opted to replace it with a new unit. In fact, the entire fuel system is set to be replaced with new parts. The remainder of the new components will arrive soon and should be installed in the chassis by the next update. The old driveshaft was also cleaned-up and painted. Next week, we'll install new u-joints and apply the appropriate markings to the shaft (part number and inspection marks).
