Got started on the passenger side floor today...

Feeling a little stressed so I decided to get something done on the car.
The gas tank was my victim.
As I started to drop the tank I got the feeling that it had been worked on before.
The main clue was that there were newer style clamps on some of the fuel/vacuum hoses.
Then I found this sticker. Looks pretty new...
Finally got the tank dropped.
I just ended up taking a boxcutter to some of the old hoses.
They needed to be replaced anyways.
Then I found this:
Sure enough the tank was replaced in 1988.
I wonder why??? Rust maybe...
Rust forming on the tanks inlet flange...

I got a bug up my ass and removed the battery tray.
Infamous for rusting, mine was showing all the signs of the cancer.
The engine bay looks so much cleaner without it anyways.
Pretty nasty under there but not too bad I suppose compared to the rest of the car.
Don't let anyone ever tell you CA cars are rust free. The only rust free cars in CA are in SoCal near the desert.
