Thanks. What did you end up using for fuel lines? I'm planning on getting a Holley Sniper and am going to run both lines new, probably not in the stock location. Looking for ideas of routing it, thinking of in coming up behind the motor in the center area.

I'm trying to decide if I want to run new lines. Currently I'm running nylon fuel lines down the passenger side.

I'm working on getting all my fuel connections wrapped up and uncovered this nice Rusty hole in the rear wheel well.

I made the mistake of poking at some rot and it grew immensely by the time I was done.

Painted the the bottom of the new tank with some undercoating.

I decided to try duplicolor's premium undercoating. I really like it. For a rattle can it goes on really well and has a nice texture almost like a bedliner.

That does look like it applied well. Did it lay out thick enough that it helps to deaden that "tinny" sound when you rap on it?

I'll pick up some great stuff on the way home.
For those that remember way back when that dude Nick was building that foam filled Eleanor in his driveway a decade or so ago I've got a story to share. I was wasting time online the other day and came across a hole I fell into and next thing I know I am perusing a thread somewhere of a guy building an Eleanor in his driveway. It looked like he was doing some good work too. Read a bit further and it said it was not his first. He had built a number of them previous but this one was his best so far, etc. I eventually figured out it was the same guy. He's still at it! Happy to report it would seem he has progressed beyond using spray foam. :D

It seems to have quieted it considerably. It has a decent thunk sound now with no vibration. Once it's full of fuel I think it should be nice.

I had to order an adjustable fuel pressure regulator and I bought one that didn't have a test port because I assumed I had the 5.0s original Schrader valve on the fuel rail. Well I didn't realize it was originally on the hard lines running down the front of the engine and was removed.

So once I get the new one, I'll finish up the install.

My favorite car show is only 2 Weeks away so I need to get this done ASAP.

Today was miserably hot and humid. Low
90s with 70% humidity. Yuck! I was dripping. But it was my day off and I needed to get some work done.

I installed the fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter and the connections at the tank.

5 days left to make my car show.

We just got home last night from Yellowstone national park, it was so nice, cool, little to no humidity and my hair actually had no frizz!! Got to our car at 1:30am and got hit by the blast of Houston heat/humidity, it was like a wall! Can't be healthy! lol

That coverage of the under coating looks great! I wonder what a car would look like painted with that? ;) kidding! However, I would like to do that to the bed of my 2000 Dodge Ram 4x4's bed!
