Ok, so now both cpp inner fenders are bolted in half way. They fit like complete ass. I don't like it one bit. But I also don't have the money to spend to get ones that do fit. So I'm just going to rock with them all junky looking. The holes don't line up for shit, the hood hing plate are completely out of sorts. Thought about just saying fuck all and not run inner fenders but I know the engine bay will probably just get sanded down with dirt and debris. So for now it is what it is. I will take pics and post them up later.

On the up side. I pulled the gas tank out of my nova last week or maybe the week b4 last I don't remeber. But it's been sitting dry for a while. Still smelt like gas, so rather then try and wash it out and all that, I grabbed about 12' of toilet paper, doubled it up and tied a knot in the end and shoved the knot and about 3 feet of tp in the tank. Lit the end of the tp and hid around the corner like a little bitch with my fire extinguisher wating for something to happen. Watched the light puff of smoke slowly roll out if the tank. Waited a min or two and spayed with some water on the outside of the tank. Nothing. No sizzle or anything. Waited about 20 min and stuck my noise in the tank. It must have burnt up inside because it don't smell like gas at all. Just burnt paper. So I'm pretty sure I'm good now to cut and weld on  it. I'll try and light it off again b4 I really burn in some weldts.


Cliffs:
Cpp 66-67 inner nova fenders fit my lakeshore front clip like shit.
Gast tank is ready for cutting and welding.

Yeah the fenders make me want to bash them with,a hammer. Which might just happen. Or I just won't run any. So today I started work on my sump for my fuel tank.





All trimmed, now I just need to drill some holes for the fuel to get into the sump and fire up the welder, set it to nignog and burn it in.

Ok, holes are drilled and the large chucks of metal are out of the tank. Now I just need to wash it a shit load of times and then weld the sump on. Gonna give it a shot tomorrow if I get time.

Welded it up. Filled it with water and got 3 little pin hole leaks. Circled them with a sharpie and emptied the tank. Gonna weld up the pin holes tomorrow. Don't really care how it looks because I'm going to under coat it black with wheel well liner so it just disappears into the undercarrage. Also going to probably put that gas tank sealer shit on the seams where I welded it on the outside too.

Man, trust me. I so wish this thing was done. I'm working on it but time is not on my side. Almost need to have a rhmt meet at my house and get this thing banged out in a weekend. I'm out in the stick, everyone can camp here in the woods and we can have a huge bonfire after we knock out some work on it!!

Well the tank is summed. Fixed the pin holes and then epoxyed over the welded areas. Then I used undercoating and then once it dried I hit it with some paint.

Taped off the area I didn't want epoxy



Layer the epoxy down, waited 10 min of so and them peeled the tape off.


Here it is all done just waiting to cure


And now here it is all painted. Just waiting for the paint to dry for a few days b4 I shove it back in.

Ordered 2, 44mm wastegates today from vs racing. After spending the day at the track on sat I realized that no matter how much I port the stock wastegate flippers I will not get enough air through. Maybe I'll get around to welding them on next year.

Well I just picked these up for $83 shipped. C5 ls1 corvette exhaust manifolds. They should make a real nice tight package for the twins!!

Well, the fuel tank is in and the sump looks killer. Blends right in. Just the way I wanted it too.



Now mock up time. I picked up a (I belive this is what it was from) 69 cougar xr7 3 core radiator off of eBay last year sometime. Has the correct in and out placement for a ls and the correct hight and width for the nova. Fits well but I need to get a couple of pieces of aluminum to add onto the sides to I can bolt it in place.



And yes, I have a whopping 2.5" between radiator and the intercooler.

Well, radiator installed and I put a couple of balls of tinfoil on the radiator and set the hood on just to make sure it wasn't to high. Fits perfect with no issues.
