Again, it is all in details. Found this limited edition medallion from Porsche. It completes this restoration perfectly.

beautiful, I have martini restorations too, that is inspiring to see fresh paint, that interior looks in great nick, dyes for the colour fade might work ok

Time to work on fuel tank. Cleaning, fixing dents and full POR 15 liner for inside. Had to build a tool for slide hammer to pull the bottom that was damaged by jacking car up under the lowest part of the tank.

BTRacing,

Can you do me a favor? If you blow into the small 1/4 inch steel pipe by the fill neck with a few PSI, do you hear air moving into the tank or does it stop and just seem like it fills a little chamber within the tank? Does that make sense? I had my tank restored at a radiator shop and when it came back that area seemed to be sealed (maybe by the sealer they used) and I've always been curious if it's my tank or all tanks.

Adam

There is a resistance when you blow air into it. i think it might have some knd of internal flap, hard to say.

Thanks for checking! Mine does the same thing and I was worried that something had been plugged up when it was resealed.
