Was struggling with what to do about a gas tank. Didn't want the agony of altering the filler neck and mounting to accommodate the reduced body height and shorter rear overhang. Also didn't want a gas door on the side of the car. A friend suggested a Mustang gas tank. This mounts through the floor, holds 16 gallons (close enough to original) and comes with a sender with the same ohm range as the Packard. For $129 shipped to my door.

Well that saved some of the rust repair on the trunk floor. I made an angle iron frame to catch it. Will work out the filler neck to be accessed by tilting the continental spare.

Also got around to inverting the trunk hinge mountings as there is no longer space above the wheel wells.

This is great, its akin to watching the build process for the Pan Americans.

Got a major piece of work done: The recess into the trunk lid and rear valence to mount a close coupled continental spare. Will start on the spare's mount tomorrow.
