    Gas tank is a leaker!!!

    Fuel flowing from numerous pinholes in the bottom of the gas tank.  C825627C-F90C-4FE5-93B6-E1238A3CAF84

    We rigged up an alternate fuel supply…..CFAC4296-90DA-4DAF-A548-B9836A89408B

    …..then went for a test drive!!!! DD53F969-7EC2-4DD6-809C-490FCA342CF3D4C5FE40-F37F-40E3-B28A-50EE4B791F7E

    Test drive went great overall!!!! Pass front wheel cylinder was the only major issue.  869A1F99-6EB4-41D2-A88C-9FBD90AE3033

    We had a fresh one in stock that we’ll swap out tomorrow.D7BDB6F3-A529-458E-B371-BA1ED0A5EC21

    Flipped front torsions and re-indexed rears set the stance just right! 56D722AF-6464-45FC-8D06-B4B70D74BD8BCB20C56C-BC13-489B-9B39-07DCBA7CBEC0

    Bummer about the gas tank, but so nice to see the old man on the road again after so many years!

    Yeah good day. Wolfsburg west had a new tank in stock. For $250 there was no way we could repair + paint one.

    ^^^ That’s the plan….

    Installed the new wheel cylinder this morning. No leaks! Breaks are good to go!

    Stock replacement batt strap is a bit long for the 12v battery. Shortening it up about 1 1/2”. FD93020D-CC46-44AD-89BF-724DDD24F5A22F52AC97-4FD4-451B-9520-0351D7D1FFF3

    That’s great to see his son involved and curious about things. They will enjoy the car together for years. Making those memories!
