      are there any advantages for having hardlines over rubber? less leaks? i know they are less likely to tear thats for sure but anythign else?

      how much more expensive is it?

      I would say there is no advantages. Its basically all cosmetic.
      all said in done its probably cheaper, than buing DOT air brake line and DOT PTC fittings. The tools to do it nice is what costs money. But once you own them, its cheaper long term.

      Swoops do you just leave it like that or do you have a false floor of some sort? I love the tank.

      i just did short bends from my tank to the valves. I need to work on it some more tonight, i'll try and snap some pics if it is still light out.

      Expenses in F1 have gone down since the 1960s because teams don't need an extra pit crew to help the driver carry around his balls when he is not in the car.

      I just dropped a **** load on flare fittings and was going to get started this weekend if it's nice out.

      question: Would you use teflon tape on the cap?


    15. 06-02-2009 06:11 PM #86
      i used flare fittings. and i used blue seal or something like that. its like a goop. my dad had it in his truck.

      when that firestone order gets made (not soon) ill order/snag up some of that. should give you plenty of time to get off your ass and bust some more goodies out for people to rep


      also, found out today that my family/I wont be traveling to sarasota (as of right now) because we lost the house a friend of the family was lending to us. their "fresh outta under-grad" daughter decided to move into it (got it made?)


      still wanting to plan a trip/visit for the end of the summer potentially. pretty bummed though

      Alright JAcob, well you keep me posted, i'll be here.

      Greg, if thats the car i'm thinking of then it should have my full sticker for sure.

      Unless mine goes on the outside I think he has the wood one.

      It isss the car your thinking of haha and check your email about the sticker your going to have some prime real estate on that tank buddy!!! so dont you worry!

      no disrespect on the sticker man it was me ****ing it up trying to put it on and wrinkled like half of it with all nice bubbles in it so i cut off half and mated it with the esad one. but dont worry man like i said there is something bigger for you because i gotta give you a **** load of credit for this build becuase with out gregs know how and amazing skill and your help with all the parts and dealing with me i gotta rep it hard
