Bill's Pontiac Starchief update #6

I had to go way back about 9 months to see where I left off on this, Its been to long for an update. as it is all not fresh in my mind anymore I'm going to just wing it. the rear body cross brace on Bill's car was totally rotted and shot, and 'cause of this the main trunk floor would flex from stuff being in there and got stress cracks here and there. we wanted to install a new gas tank that had a late model fuel injection pump in it and the closet one we could get was a 1957 Chevy for the 1957 Pontiac. so my bright idea was to replace the center of the trunk floor with a Chevy panel so the gas tank would line up with the "notches" in the trunk floor, anyone that has done a gas tank on these vintage cars knows what Im talking about. I had to replace the rear cross brace body bushings and have a sheet metal shop bend up a top & bottom rear cross brace as my metal brake wasn't wide enough or deep enough to do the job and it was some good thick stuff and a bit hard for me to bend. from here on out I'll let the photos do the story telling I'm sure you'll get the idea. I am a lot further along then this so in the coming weeks I'll try to get everyone up to speed. Get out in the garage and build something! -FRITZ
