    I had two crossbar triangles milled out and now the inlet and outlet on the tank will be repositioned so the fuel lines will have a strait shot. The tank will change color to black.
    The center of the inlet/outlet holes will be a little higher then the small hole and they will be centered left to right. The O on the crossbar is where the small hole is when looking at it level. The X's are about where the two holes with threading will be moved. The inlet and outlet ports will be almost flat with just a very slight upward angle. That area needs attention anyway as I had a small fuel leak from a broken O ring in the past. I also use an aluminum washer that's not seen as I've hand threaded those parts in and out 5 or so times as I measure everthing.
    Most of the time when stock is altered it creates a chain of things that will need to be altered to make it all work together.
    Oh, and I had to have the steering rack holes on the crossbar milled 1mm towards the center on each side. I'm still using the SWB steering rack with turbo tie rods and it works well.

    I need some input. Which decklid? Bearing in mind this is a gentleman's hotrod. So we can do whatever we want. The yellow decklid is a SWB decklid from my car and is there just to look at the lines on the car, which is a 69. The exhaust tips probably will get shortened some.

    Thumbs up

    Chris,

    To me the 'hump' deck lid brakes the the 911 arc silhouette....
    And the 'quad opening' is just too attention grabbing....

    Plain or louvered for my .02 ....

    Cheers,

    Chris,
    What about the louvered lid with a 'mesh' insert instead of the factory grill. I think it would tie the front mesh detail in better with the back.
    My 2 C worth.

    Of the choices, louvered or original for sure. Not sure on the grill approach with a louvered lid but probably 6 of one and half dozen of the other...definitely don't like the quad opening and the scoop just feels wrong.

    I do remember a scooped 67S that Don was selling that may be worth considering as an option...but you can see from the profile view in the gallery that the silhouette is definitely perturbed as Chuck suggests.

    Really like the work you're doing Chris.

    I'm starting the process of adding strengh for coilovers. The spring plate area, stronger rear sway bar mounts, top of rear shock towers, and a couple other areas will happen in the next couple weeks I hope.
    Then undercoating.

    How do you plan to do the undercoating? Just touch up the existing or undercoat everything?
    Will be interesting to see what you come up with so that it's looks good.
