Installing a 1982 Mustang Fuel tank into a 1979 Mustang

Had to relocate wiring location due the dual exhaust tailpipes clearance issues.  

Install grommet to protect wiring for the sending unit.

Wiring is later rapped with electrical tape to protect from elements like it was from factory. 

Use dielectric grease on connectors.  

After test fitting I pulled the tank back out do to clearance issues that needed to be addressed the metal flaps needed to be bent down more. 

For this task just use a rubber mallet and make sure you leave the tank protector in place on bottom so that you ensure fit and bend metal around it.

After adjustments install the new tank back in the car
