So I got the new white rubber strips in, now to finish trimming them and glue into place. Gas tank looks good, but having a hard time figuring out how to hook up the fill spout. It has to go from a 2" on the top assembly to a 1.5" tube on the tank inlet. I have a steel bent tube to help shape it, but I am thinking about modifying the deck filler to have a 1.5" diameter stub on it and just make a connecting piece. Not sure, the tank doesn't want to line up with the metal filler tube where the extra piece of plywood was for it. Oh-well. I have to get the tank secured before I drop the motor in though. Brian Edit: Rubber side strips are profile # 4615 in white from wefcorubber.com Cost was $6 a foot plus delivery, took a little less than 3 weeks to get as it was not in stock. Happy happy happy! Will replace bow piece after I get this thing running.
