Hey everyone!

I'm restoring my '65 I6 and have just about everything out of the car and ready to be painted.

My dad mentioned to me that he read somewhere about an inexpensive fix when restoring these old cars in case of a rear-impact collision. Something about additional protection to the gas-tank area.

Anyway -- I was hoping someone here on the forum would have more detail or would have heard of this before.

Thanks!

Get yourself a National Parts Depot catalog. They have them in the catalog. NPD has a web site, and you can order a catalog from them....
Good luck with the project.

Thanks!

What exactly is the fix he's talking about?

you can also check out www.tankarmor.com

they sell a kit that is supposed to protect the tank and the trunk area. i've also heard people adding a steel plate just behind the rear seats to keep fuel from entering the interior passenger compartment in the event of a rear end collision.

by the way did your nickname come from Star Wars? i was just wondering /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
