May 2012.
I am still working on the brakes and gas tank to get it driveable, attempts to clean the tank myself  have not worked I am going to have to have a shop clean it. I found two shops that I am going to look into to clean and seal it. Brake wise the steel lines are corroded and I cannot break them free without damaging the line or rounding the brass fitting so I am going to have to replace the whole system, all the lines, cylinders and shoes, etc. I am assuming the master cylinder is in the same shape although I do have a kit for the earlier dual cylinder. I have been finding some good deals for parts on ebay with free shipping that is helping keep costs down some.

  1. Gas tanks in these old cars can be.. interesting. My bug right now had a rusty tank, so the previous owner poured some tar stuff into it to "fix" it. Unfortunately it ruined it and now I have to replace the whole tank. But about 4 years later how is the '68 doing?
