Has anyone tried this?. I want to shave the gas filler door(1970) and was curious if anyone has some ideas on how to re-route the gas filler tube. Im thinking of just putting on a 90 degree tube on with an after market gas cap. I also have the spare 65' gas tank and wondered if that would fit.

Yep.. use the older tank. That is what is in my 68' now. Shaved filler door and older tank. Works great and looks good.

You could do a 90 degree, but then trying to seal that up will be a pain in the butt

I agree, use the early tank. MUCH easier!

These guys are right. Early tank. You'll need the 1962 and on style tank. I think it changed again in 1968 but I am not sure.
