Re: link to mustang gas tank install

I paid a fab guy to 4 link my rear, & install the mustang tank, but he shimmed the tank down below the frame rails, then he installed a 90 degree rubber fuel neck.
Looks like crap, & can't put a fuel nozzel in it.
I'm thinking i need remove the 2" sq tubing shims, install the same fuel neck as you.
Please advise
sorry i never saw this, so its a late reply...
yes its a stepside
stock rear bumper
yes that fuel neck with the bend came with the tank from tanks inc
yes i used a flexible fuel hose. i made my own flip down license plate by combining the stock license plate braket and a universal flip down bracket. getting the custom braket welded to the rear sill was not an easy job. an old friend of mine with 40 years of welding / metal work experience was able to do it.
