Ordered the last of the parts for the gas tank. Capacitive-type fuel level sensors (no moving parts and compact) come in two lengths, 12″ and 24″. Since the 24″ unit is more expensive, and because the tank was already about 10″ tall, it was made taller to allow using the 12″ sensor without being cut down. This brings total tank volume to 14.4 gallons which is pretty nice. I think the tank will be a cool side project.

There are a couple different rear body treatments being discussed on the forum but you’ll need to register to see it. As long-time readers know, there was such differing opinion about what looked best that builders are encouraged to do their own. It’ll be a nice way to differentiate and personalize each car so they aren’t simply clones.
