Don - Where did you purchase your heater shut-off? I am looking to replace mine as well.

Got the straps on the tank and fitted with access to the sending unit. Fuel line is next.

Thanks Bob. So I was able to adjust and get the unit into the tank and have it dry fit in-place. Working the straps looks to be the next hurdle. Will tackle that tomorrow.

Also was able to start the running board pad install. Got the top adhered. Will let that settle for a day and then begin getting the sides down. For sure glad I made the choice to get the pads that have the ridges on the back side.

Happy with how they turned out so far.

Thanks.

So I am putting the sending unit into the gas tank. Ran into a problem. Not sure if this is standard or not.

It looks like the gas tank is not the same depth as the original and the new and old sending unit bottom out.

I was going to adjust the new sending unit so it will fit but was wondering if others ran into this before?

Tank is from Moparpro and sending unit from Max.

Didn’t want to go question either till I got some feedback from you guys.

Thoughts appreciated!

Flackmaster was kind enough to dig into his archives and send me his last one!!!

It looks brand new and now I need to make sure the rest of the knobs on the dash meet this standard. Off to the chrome plater!

My new running board pads from Metro were delivered. Contoured on the backside and the fit is nice.

I got this weldwood adhesive but not sure if this will work as it’s a spray and not a paste?

It is the Landau Top & Trim HHR as described in the other post.

Any thoughts on spray vs a paste?

I am going to scuff up the back side of the pad before application.

Thoughts appreciated!

Yes. Getting under the sash was a challenge. I actually cracked a rib!! I was sitting up and my rib was on the corners edge of the door threshold and……crack! Who knew working on cars was a contact sport?!?!?

Thanks for the info. Will look onto replacing this. Closing the heater doors helps but it gets a bit toasty in the summer. At least it’s a convertible!
