True I can't make window functional, just keeping the weather out as best can until spring.
Also,... what is PITA?

yep, it looks like it will be however, thanks to this board I have links to the preformed sheetmetal and can get it repaired as soon as I brush up on my welding skills! (or find a willing professional most likely).

Ordered myself a few filler/gromett parts for the gas tank and some rust cleaner in prep for removing / treating rust issues I have found.

... It's going to be a fun holiday!

Sunday is the day... gas tank is on site, with filler neck, pipe and grommet as well as the sending unit. If all goes well, we will be flowing fuel to the beast for first time in 6yrs!

Soooo shiny!

I just did this too! My build thread has a step by step. Positioning the tank so that it lines up OK and sticks out the grommet on the cab is tricky, but it's something you can do yourself with patience. Make sure to stick the filler neck out of the cab a good amount or you can't get a good hold on the gas cap to turn it.
That sucker is tough to take off if you have fat fingers and didn't allow for that.

Good luck! Post pix!

So...
Installed sending unit, installed tank, then a bunch of other stuff ( plugs and wires and new battery)... turned the key and tank registers 0. Nada.
Turn the engine and it cranks but wont turn over.
Checking fuel flow tomorrow but wondering if there are any suggestions as to the fuel gauge and not turning over?

The sender only measures resistance. Make sure the ground wire to the cab from the sending unit is good. If you have a meter, you can measure the resistance from the ground post (has a nut on it) to the positive post (has a wire slipped on it) and see what it says.
There's a little nylon washer under the nut connection that some folks lose or forget. make sure that's there too.

it was nice to hear the engine crank a bit, will check the power and ground to sending unit next time. meanwhile, here's what we accomplished.
