I did.  I cut short the hard fuel line and moved the fitting down to the frame rail, then had Hose & Rubber make me a soft fuel line that I looped up behind the trans tunnel, and I mounted the original fuel filter on the drivers fender.  Come over and look at it.

But it makes my driveway so sexy.

Every time I think I'm going to spend the morning under the hood something pops up or I get sidetracked.  What I think I need to do is throw a wrench party one of these weekends so you all can come over and keep me on task.  Very Happy

To do list: install the conversion harness, locate the ECU, shield the brake lines and intake, drain the dead gas and clean the tank, probably some other little stuff.

I just spent the better part of an hour (fortunately on the clock) reading through this build thread. It has a terribly sad ending, like Tiger Woods' golf career. I feel bad for the Bastard. Anything I can do to help get another 1st gen back on the road?

Make me stop playing on the weekends so that I have time to finish the yardwork and honey-dos so that I have time to pay attention to the truck? Smile
