Duffy's 1/71 Series 1 240z build

Recommended Posts

Got the new 5/8 line in the mail today and got all lines replaced, this is the last of my lines that were old and brittle.  It was a pain, but glad I got to clean the area and check for rust and get new grommets installed.

That looks really good.  What did you do for the 5/8s on top of the tank, the 180 degree bend?  I lucked out and got all my stuff from O'Reilly's.

Evap tank or gas tank?  I assume you are talking about the gas tank, I will either use a stainless rod bent, or a spring, I haven't decided yet, tank should be done and back this week.

Got the drive lines back today from having u joints pressed in.  They came out pretty good, paint/ powder had some nicks from their press, so I had to do some touch up paint.  The tech didn't like the powder on the end of the flanges.  He said the powder will eventually wear down and cause slop.  Anyone heard of this?  Or think he is correct?
