I got the filler neck mess figured out, the industrial supply place next to my office had 1" ID gas rated hose in stock. It was a bitch to get it (a) onto the metal piece and (b) into the rubber/metal piece that I made.

I also spent hours last night on wiring in the new rear lights. Most of that was spent sitting, scratching my head, wondering
why
do
my
damn
brake
lights
not
work.

They worked before!!! Turn signals, tail lights, reverse lights work. Emergency flashers do not work either.

As it turns out I must have pulled the brake light fuse at some point and now all is well but it took me HOURS to figure that out.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Yep, my fault, nobody else removed that fuse. The real question in my mind is, why did I do that? I have no answers.

Apparently I wanted that to sink in.

I didn't mean to post it twice.

Had a new windshield installed on Wednesday. Trim is back on. I wire wheeled all the paint off the wiper arms and buffed them before putting those back on... not sure that I like it, I may take them off and paint them black like they were. I thought it would match the chrome grill and other trim but I'm not sold on it.
