    I still think Sharecropper needs a clear hood, I agree it is just too pretty to hide.

    C'mon guys. It's always pretty when it's clean.

    Like any of us thinks that engine will ever be anything but clean................................when you are "carried away" that far there is no coming back, LOL. Beautiful attention to detail is what makes it so special, really a joy to follow your progress.

    Yes, it is the attention to detail that catches the eye. Very well done !

    Plastic tank arrived. Got it all mounted up. I will probably get a plastic welder to move the filler neck.

    Buy a quality plastic welder and lots of extra plastic rod to practice with. I bought a medium quality one which worked OK, but for quality work I needed a better welder. Also you will need lots of practice to get a good weld. I spent a lot of time with mine to finally get the quality and look I was after.

    Before you button that all up, get some anti-seize on all the bolts in case it ever needs to come apart again.

    Yep for sure, I use Permatex copper anti seize on anything that I know will need thread protection, taken apart at a later time. I also use it on shock eye, rubber bushings, swaybar bushings, leaf spring bushings, sway bar bushings. You get the idea that I have a lot of uses for the stuff.

    I buy it in 8oz bottles and will last me for a looong time.

    Maybe not!

    I have thought about this before. I do own a DeWalt heat gun that can be used for plastic welding. For this one time need, I think I'll let a pro handle it.

    Good idea. I already tried to use as short as possible bolts where I can. Some of the original bolts (all over the truck) where way too long. Made removing the rusty bolts even harder then it already was.
