    Right now she is partially stripped down to bare metal for body work and paint.
  1. Thanks so much mike! that does make sense, i will try it since its sitting on the floor right now
  2. Hi all, I've done some searching but can't find others solutions ... i had to replace the gas tank on my 240 so I purchased a beautiful (really) used tank. When preping to put it all back on the car, I noticed both of the lines coming out of the front of the tank (return and inlet) are 5/16" .... the return line on my car is 1/4" hard line... The tank may have been from a later model, mine is a 72' it fits perfect otherwise. What have others on the forum used as a reducer for this? Or am i the first to run across this? Thanks in advance.
  3. I am stoked for you.... Jealous, but stoked

  13. Does anyone know if there is a a company out there that makes a smooth piece for the rear of a 240. i am trying to eliminate my rear bumper and instead of doing all the patchwork needed i thought it would be nice if someone made a one piece weld on unit. Thanks in advance. Slo
  14. Not to beat a dead horse, but is anyone on the forum running 14 inch rims with the tokico hp/eibach suspension setup... I just want to see some pic's so I can get an idea of what the different tyre size's look like. Any pics of 14's would be great! just remember to mention your tire size. Thanks again
