I've been running lines and wires. Put the gas tank in place and looked inside. It was full of scaly rust. I had to cut the end off and have the inside sandblasted. I welded the end back on and guess what? No leaks!

That's good work! Not very often do you not have to go back over something after the leak test!

I don't think I have ever heard or thought about sand blasting the inside of a tank. Good solution.

Got any sure fire methods for keeping it from rusting in the future?

Saw this infomercial on Polish Cable TV for a Popiel Pulse Fan Afterburner for only $49.99 plus shipping and handling. PLUS, included for free was some ointment that enhances my interest in female members of the opposite sex. Don't know what I'll do with that??? Anyway, I have high hopes for the afterburner. Might go to Bonneville with it.

DJ, I'm not lining the tank with sealer, Had mixed results with it with our ethanol laced gas. I will just keep non-oxy gas in it.

If the ointment says, "Me Love You Long Time", it doesn't work.

The afterburner shows promise, however...

Bob, I've had real good luck so far with RedKote tank liner. Did both the Lincoln and my IH tractor tanks with it, and have used ethanol blend gas and pure gas both, so far after a couple of years, no problems. Your gas up there might be different than ours down here though.

The afterburner probably has as much power as the original engine ...

Back on the Renault in a small way. Been doing a number of tasks that tend to get overlooked when the major building is going on. I had the shifter mounted to the trans tunnel for a while but just completed the cover for it. All the wiring is going to be exposed on this car, giving the interior a competition look. Finished the throttle linkage, brake pedal, seat mountings and the steering linkage from the rack to the steering wheel. None of it picture worthy however.

Since I practically sit in the back seat it didn't make sense to put the switches in the dash where I couldn't reach them.

Cool

The rule of thumb is that all pictures are worthy
Nice shift / switch set-up
