Took the fuel line out:

Why is there a spring around the bit entering the front wheel well? Protection?

Yes, it's stone guard.

Some comments on dipping your car. I have a 72 Q vert that was dipped several years ago. Many say it will bleed back out of joints but I have seen none of that on this car that was done 10 years ago and in epoxy primer since. It is very important that your supplier has the ability to rinse the car extremely good. They also need a phosphate tank to dip the car in to give it some protection until you get primer back on. A good operation will have an oven they can bake in to make sure it is completely dried out also.
I believe it is around $2,000 to dip here in U.S.A. but have not checked in a few years. I think it is a great idea on a car you want to be done right.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Mine was dipped at a Redi-Strip facility in Evansville Indiana.  

No problems, excellent results.

I had my hood dipped ny this place, it was also a test nut it looks good. Their rust removal uses phosphate I believe so it will have some protection until priming it.

However, I’m far from ready for the dip hahaha. First I want to fix the tail light and LH drop off.
