And maybe use a bay filler neck

Or use a concept racing filler neck

If you do use away filler neck DON'T join it with silicone hose. It will rot like a pear & you'll have major problems!

Maybe I've missed something in the thread but thought I'd point it out from experience.

I found it difficult to source fuel grade hose in bay neck diameter - most places don't sell the right length but a bit of research lead me to Burton, a 'Ford' specialist who sell it by the inch.

My front bumper over rider has took a bashing - so with a big hammer bashing and a big press we played hit the over rider

Image

A little twisted !!!!

Image

Image

Now with the press - bang bang

Image

The outcome - not perfect but a bit better ??

Image

Image

And still retaining a bit of pat N tina !!
The guy who's press I borrowed didn't understand why I want painting it????
