fuel filler questions
#1
I saw the other thread about the fuel filler boot and had a couple of different questions.

When I took my old filler boot out it was tore up and I found what I think is a hold down plate but I have not seen it in any pictures.

My question is is this a part of the filler boot and the rubber part was gone by the time I got the car or do I need to make one.

Second question is about the filler tube itself. Mine is a little crusty, any tips for restoring it?

That metal is inside of the rubber boot / seal

Clean up the filler tube
Wire brush , scrape and blow out the inside
Clean , sand and paint the outside, I use cast coat color to simulate bare metal

If I remember correctly the plate is made into the neck gasket and I sand blasted and painted the filler neck. As it is not reproduced. I actually had to have a few spots welded up.

Ok thanks, cause I was trying to figure out how to make/ fix it. So I can just treat the filler as any other rusty metal part?

Thanks again.

"So I can just treat the filler as any other rusty metal part?"
Yes but I painted the outside but did not paint the inside of mine.
Roy is correct about the second tube, air vent when filling up.
