Re: 55 Wagon Progress

After 3 hours of studying this page I had better get out to the shop.
Thank you for the education.

Re: 55 Wagon Progress

More progress.....Mike got the new fuel tank all prepped with the fuel pump...










Tank mocked up so we can do test fit/fabrication of the filler neck down to the tank...











An elbow will be needed to join these two together.







The local NAPA store had some smooth elbow exhaust pipe that we used to fabricate the complete filler neck, all the pieces were TIG welded together, and Dana powder coated the assy black for us.







Bracket we fabricated for bolting to the floor flange.















Next, the drip rail area was scuffed well and the car inverted so we can seal the bottom of the drip rail to the top of the quarter area. This is using the self leveling sealer, so we needed to counter the gravity effect.











Next time we'll get the top side done..

Re: 55 Wagon Progress

Thanks Jim!


We found a flat spot in the drip rail that needed to match the rest, found a suitable worn jaw pair of Vise grips that was ripe for modification.
