Ok,
Time on the Peterson fluids website left my wallet light and hopes up.
I ordered all the LS7 parts. Not the AN stuff yet because i have a good grasp on that.

Well the tank and breather arrived today. The box was huge and my heart sank.
You see I read the dimensions carefully and measured my desired install spot.
Good lord, now what.

I opened the HUGE box and much to my surprise things were double boxed!

Ok, enough crap, I unboxed the tank an breather and they fit perfectly in the hole I had for Them!

Wow! For all the ups and downs, this is a big up for me! The oil tank and breather are the only true unknowns for me left. Now I have them and they seem to fit! Next few days will see me mounting them and getting ready to plumb them! Yeah! One more ( in my mind) hurtle working its way out!

Back to my glass of wine with my bride on the deck! Gas fire pit is nice!
We will fire up the firedisk shortly for a simple stir fry!

Scott

Saturday was a good day to be in the garage.

I purchased stainless steel nuts and bolts as well as washers. Picked up some aluminum for backing plates and headed into the garage.


I managed to get the 2 gallon tank mounted behind the passenger side gills and the breather tank just forward of that.

Given the tank holds 2 gallons of oil I added backing plates to support the extra weight.
I'll be squirting the plates  flat black in the near as they shine nicely and are visible in the front right wheel well. Once black and wheels remounted it should disappear.

I also ordered Koul Tools kit to make my AN lines. Last time I did this without the tools and my fingers bled a lot! LOL! This time I hope the tools willmake the line end assembly easier.

Here you can see the oil tan and catch can!

Thanks guys,
Yeah it is getting there. One piece one at a time!
Engine bay is starting to get full though. I have room between the radiator and engine but that is about it! LOL! Filling the engine oil will be a trick as the tank fill is under the fender. Doh! It does not seem bad right now but I'm sure I'll curse myself over the years!

The only thing I do not like is the tank is very visible through the gills. The average guy will not know the difference however a true vette guy will likely notice. We'll see there. IF it gets attention I may pull it and paint it flat black also.

It is almost like I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  Cheesy
