"Almost Heaven" 67 - swb- Lilly

My first build from ground up , I have been collecting parts for over a year .
I bought my chassis from a fellow board member , description :
" 72 chassis. Has been sand blasted, primed, and painted with semi glass implement paint. Finish looks great and is very durable. Everything is newly rebuilt, all Moog, AC Delco or Raybestos parts. CPP 4/6 drop kit all new, spindles, springs, ball joints, tie rods, adj. panhard rod, drop blocks, etc... (Everything is new!) Has cross drilled rotors front and rear (Astro front rotors on rear, new) with brand new Wilwood D52 calipers on all 4 corners. 3.08 open rear axle with weld on caliper brackets for the D52s. Rear axle has 50K original miles on it."
We will start with this 72 chassis and put a 67 all oem body except bed , have
not found a bed good enough yet and thinking about a new aftermarket 67
bed with no stake pockets ... Have to wait and see what happens !!!
Would love some opinions on the wheel size ? Thinking about 17x8 front 4.5 BS-- 18 x 9.5 back 5 " BS ... Will start the brake line plumbing next ...

disc brakes need more pressure, where drums need more volume...

Re: "Almost Heaven" 67 - swb- Lilly

Nice project, looks like you have a good start on it. I have a new Southern Kentucky Classics 67 Bed without the stake pockets and I really like it. Very nice quality piece, it's a little pricey but I think you would be happy with it. I'm in for the build.

Re: "Almost Heaven" 67 - swb- Lilly

Starting on the fuel cell and lines ... Would love to hear advice on which
way to go with the type of fuel lines and the best fuel cells ... I am looking at -

JEGS Performance Products#555-15348

20-Gallon Fuel Cell•0-90 Ohm GM Fuel Level Sender Included
•(2) -08AN Male Outlets
•(1) -08AN Male Vent
•(1) -08AN Male Rollover Valve Fitting
•24" L x 20" W x 10" H
•Black Powder-Coat Finish

Would you use hard line,(Fuel & Transmission Cooler Line Coil •Galvanized Zinc ) 5/16"? 3/8"? or the Pro-Flo 350 Braided Hose ? And wat size diameter ?
is 08AN diameter OK ?

Re: "Almost Heaven" 67 - swb- Lilly

I used a 1969 Camaro gas tank in mine, with a flip down tag. so the gas inlet will be under the tag. With 3/8 aluminum gas line with rubber on both ends, works great.
