Dump out 32 years old gas. Looks very brown/red , will soak it with cider vineyar to remove rust.

I suggest coating the tank interior with Red Kote.

I didn't want to spend money on cider vineyar , use what I already have Evaporust, let is soak, it was not rust, just 35 years old gas residue..

I want the gas tank to be super clean of rust, time for cider vineyar. At $4.32 a gallon much cheaper than Evaport rust. Also Plumber's Putty make great gasket sealer, I have tank standing vertical with 7 gallons of cider " no drip or leak " I will use toilet wax bowl to seal the top, so no gas vapor can escape.

Clean up the trunk and make the electrical wiring pretty. The trunk is the original Florida color.

Looking good!

 I love the stock wheels and hubcaps. The car looks perfect as is. I think the BBS would look fine too, the real improvement being the better tire you could fit.

 Either way, awesome car, keep it up!
