I’m with you. Absolutely love patina on the outside but looking like a restored car inside. I like the engine bay looking flash as well.

Progress report,...
Finally managed to get the fuel filler tube finished n all done...

Tigged together,.flattened slightly to clear the chassis rail ,..including provision to disconnect when dropping the tank form underneath,.....n rollover valve sorted, screw on cap welded onto the riser tube..

Tub got dropped back on the chassis after being removed back in October,.....but we have a bit of a problem,.....seems weve run out of room on the inside of the wheeltubs n the back of the wheels n tires,.........after much discussion n measuring n headscratching ,..I decided that were going to mini tub the rear inner wheel wells , seems to match up to the floor its either 1" or 2.4" ....so its gonna be 2.4".....
Itll clear the existing wheels n tubes easily and allow for any future wheels n tires.

next was dummy up of the Evap box,...running heater hoses from the right side exits back to the left is fun,..found some heater hoses with 180 degree bend,.

Heater outlets exit the engine in the centre behind the intake manifold,..ill run 2 hoses about 8" long thru the firewall n around to the Evap box,..but gotta mount the water heater control module inside above the evap box up under the dash n hide it...

Effys Progress report .
Not quite in sequence, but someone may find it interestiong...

I made my own dash insert to hold my Dakota Digital VHX Gauges,.....Ive run some of these in my Camaro since 2014 and they are absolutely amazing gauges,....with built in alarms and presets,...thy have built in Oil Pressure n Temp, Amp n fuel level,....
They can be adjusted to correct speed,...and have a built in 1/4 mile timer an fastest top speed n revs..... they only need a TAch signal, n an electric signal for speedo with several options incl GPS or plug in Electric drive for cable speedo boxes....oil pressure n water temp and fuel reading .The lighting on these is just outstanding at night real late model look with numerous colours available..

I decided to have it powdercoated in Satin black.....
got it back last week n took half a day to bolt it back together,...partly because I took my time so as not to scratch the powder coating,....but mainly because I forgot it went together in a specific order to mount and hold the 2 gauges......oops...

Got an oldish gal tool box for storage in the back,...being gal it wasnt rusty sadly,..so I had to give it some etch primer n a bit of home made patina paint n a few markings,...my battery n storage will all go in here

I find myself doing stuff like this,.....went to fit my Vintage Air ducts under the ends of the dash,.....n they didnt quite fit.....as they were rectangular I thought the round ones wound fit n suit better,.....so I ditched my VA ones, found some on Ebay then spent an hour at Bunnings trying to find PVC plumbing fittings , funny how the staff dont come near you till your walking out,.......ggrrr
hhmmm,.....it seems the combo Im after doesnt exist,...the outlet is 40mm n i need to go onto 40mm then up to 62mm...witha 90 degree bend in the middle..as the flexi hoses are 2.5" hmm,,,,....

This arvo I dropped the seat in to check a few things,....made a template for behind the middle of the set for a feature n somewhere that I'll mount a double USB/Cig lighter outlet,...need somewhere to plug in phones n things in... Also having bit of feature in the top under the back window ,.....it may not work yet.....if it does it;ll be a bit a bling....

Dropped my storage box in the back n marked out the spot to mount it,..the battery will live in there along with another double USB/Ciggy lighter charging point combo.....Im forever running camera batterys n stuff on chargers, these will be live so I can plug them in n turn the truck off n walk away leaving stuff to charge.

Been busy doing a few bits n pieces,...at this point theres been work done,....but nothing to look at.......kinda annoying in one way, but happy a few more small bits are crossed of the list....

Got the towbar fitting the rear frame rail now....got the battery cables all done n mounted,.....got the exhaust pipes tweaked a bit to clear the tank...finished the top radiator hose,...modified n powdercoated the expansion tank...., got the expansion tank hose to fit,....bolted down the AC Hoses under the bonnet n secured them to the crossmember , got my Seatbelt brackets lazer cut n bent,..ready to powder caot o pain not sure yet...

About to start the final push with bits to finish off.....

Anyone using Falcon EFI motors. what are you doing to use the MAF ???.....originally I wanted to use a small comical aircleaner but now I realise I gotta hook up the MAF as well...kinds stumpd....

One direction I was thinking about was to cut a piece out of the inner left guard n sink the original Airbox n MAF mount half into the guard n kinda flush mount the top of it ....???

Im open to suggestions n pics on how to run / mount an Air Cleaner n MAF.

Not for 61/66,......n then 67 to 74,......after that later ones are wider between the chassis rails,

I had a certified welder cut end plates off n swap side for side,..so it now fits perfect..
