It is just rubber strap I ordered off Amazon that is the same width and thickness as the old deteriorated cotton stuff that was on it. I used weatherstrip adhesive to fasten it in place before I installed the tank. Hopefully the adhesive is strong enough.

It's kinda funny when ya think a 45 gallon drum is 11 gallons short of fillin' that tank.

Are you going to drive that museum piece in the mud or build a back up truck we can get dirty? Once this is done you'll be bored. :D

It will probably be a road queen unless I have to get it dirty. I'm ready to get this done and enjoy some "boring" regular preventative maintenance and driving. Don't worry though, I still have one more truck to do and two parts trucks to start pulling apart.

We are finally seeing some things come together. I dropped the ball on getting The Low/High Range decal for around the speedometer, but will get back on that.

The rear window got a new gasket cut and is installed. The upper drip edge will be installed later.

The fall camo is ready on my other project.

I emailed the dash marking pictures from Plowboy to Dave at Delta Team Decals last night. First thing this morning he had this ready and I have ordered a set.

I'll post pictures of them when they arrive. He is calling them the M135 Dash Marking if any of you want to order a set.
