Re: Gas tank removal, Dave motto head.

OK, there's some serious rust in there! Tank is solid otherwise. Gonna chain/shake/rinse/repeat and let sit with some Evapo Rust in various orientations before Red Koting. Tank still had exactly 5 gallons inside, could not remove, outlet was clogged. Added 30 lbs to tank weight, was a bear to wrestl...

Re: Gas tank removal, Dave motto head.

A good work day. Just a few hours actually, after a late start. Finished some interior work and got my '67 up on jackstands in prep for tank removal tomorrow. I sprayed some Liquid Wrench on all the well-rusted nuts & bolts (tank & swaybar) to soak in overnight to do battle tomorrow. But after a few...

Re: Identifying electrical wires in LM

Also check your multiwire connector through the front firewall near the master cylinder. Unplug from inside the trunk, look for corrosion, maybe spray some contact cleaner if necessary and reconnect. I needed another pair of hands inside under the dash to push on the internal connector to reconnect....

Re: Gas tank removal, Dave motto head.

Nice, I hope to get to that in the next few days. Do you plan to seal the tank with POR-15 or Redkote? I posted about a cheap sender on Ebay at https://www.corvairforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=111685#p111685 . BTW, how much did the radiator shop charge you to clean it out? I couldn't even find a r...

Re: Diving Back In

My 67 Monza's steering wheel chrome was pretty bad but daughter Amy did a nice job cleaning it up.

Re: Door Speakers

I did see that space, there's a smallish square opening in the metal door frame down there. Didn't want to cut that SS strip on the exterior panel. I might could prolly fit a 4" speaker down there, but no way a modern 6.5" speaker. Have you seen modern speakers and their huge frame & monster magnets...

My little radio head unit has 2 front channels that are not hooked up and fairly going to waste. It would be nice to use them. I found some 5-1/4" waterproof marine ...
