Those are some wide bonnet stripes, they look like they get even wider as they go down the bonnet to the lip, was that intentional ?

You will need to strap the tank in position if you haven't done so already.

Yes lol
I love how they turned out.
Broke my hand and bought a house, working on the cars has stopped for now. I got a lot of interior work done and most of the weatherstripping sorted. New windows all around, i put the tint on and put the doors together. You know, all the small tedious things no one will every appreciate how long it takes to do yourself lol

Id post pictures but even typing this is a chore right now

Why do you say the tank needs a strap? Think the bolts holding it arent good enough?

The bolts will be fine but with such a large tank without baffles the holes will fatigue and break from the movement of the fuel, this is a problem even with smaller tanks. The straps will increase the surface area and resolve this problem, project Binky had to do the same.
