I wonder what vehicle will be quicker?? Your garage looks more like a family room. Are those Lino tiles or a checkered epoxy flooring? The Jeep look kind of ok, too!

saw your post over on CF.

You sure an LT1 is the best choice? what year did it come out of? hopefully it has the vented opti and even then I wouldnt want to tempt fate by soaking it.

But to try to answer your Q about the fuel lines. they are rubber at the tank so it should not be a prob. just use good clamps on either side of the barb.

Did you see his garage? I don't think a mudbog or fjord crossing is in his future. Can't a guy just build a kickass Jeep?

I posted a question about fuel lines....can't control what I get back....


jepsterjc,

Its plastic 12" square flooring, best price I could find 2 years ago from Costco, easy to install and maintain.

Does it matter where I place the fuel filter, near the engine like the vette, or at the stock Jeep location?

Thanks,
Rick

Hi Rick, Just saw your answer above about your flooring. Thanks for the info. I put down a white epoxy and with all the heavy work and welding going on it is scratching/chunking up pretty fast. Oh well.

I put the filter up where I could work on it, it would stay cleaner and not get snagged by bush that I always seem to drive through. Also, I only used metal to barbed to rubber injection hose and double clamps so I could routinely check the condition of the connections more easily with it up under the hood.

Maybe I missed it but how did you determine your engine mount locations w/o test fitting the body?

Very nice build btw.

I didn't, the mount dictated it, It bolts directly to the shock mounts...A pic showing the location is on page 1 of this thread, I do have other angles if you want them.
