the oil tank seems like an easy job, but it ain't. Just to
get the thing to a patina that looks original, is quite a
job because of all the years of corrosion.
the tank fittings, including the metal collar that retains
the oil cap.
all the necessary hardware, installing new seals and crush
washers at all the fittings.
Martin are bucking the rivets for the filler cap collar. Epoxy
is used as a sealing filler between the tank and the collar.
these parts (that Andy has been restoring for weeks) are installed,
it really looks clean, neat and original.
now hooking up the oil lines, including an original breather
tank. These tanks would normally hang on the chassis, but
were all moved to the fiberglass undertray because they kept
falling off the mounts on the frame.
now completed the passenger seat. This seat will be mounted
with heavier hardware because this car will be used for touring
and undoubtedly, a passenger will ride along. The way the
carrera 6 passenger seat normally mounts, is basically for
looks. So, if someone is to sit in it, you have to beef it
up. These seats will go to the upholsterer next week.
