With all the over time I am working the red turbo project is still on hold. Today I was able to get some time away from work and with the limited time I had I decided to pull the tank out of this car. The trunk pan is still very nice above the tank. The car has lots of surface rust on the bottom but thankfully everything is solid still. The biggest issue is the roll pan on the back. It will need replaced but thankfully I have an NOS one now. The tank is full of junk and some rust particles. The tank don’t have any holes in it but I will have to clean it out real good. I am undecided if i will add a liner to the inside but I likely should. The bottom inside of the tank is good but the rusty area is the top inside where the fuel was not covering it.
