Went to tractor supply to try and find some black 3/16 fuel line but they didnt have any. Luckily enough I saved the old fuel line and just ended up useing it, I dont like how its blue but that's all I can get around here, finding hose clamps that will work is hard too, ended up using zip ties on the gas tank and carb inlet because I couldnt find my stash of hose clamps.  Neutral   I also needed a o-ring for the bottom of the carb bowl, my dad works for Parker Seal and they make o-rings, so he found one that worked perfectly!

I've ran that blue stuff before. Over time it gets hard. I do however have a little baggie of the fuel line clips.

I think its 3/16.....could be wrong but 1/8 is too small and 1/4 is too big......seems like all that fits is this blue fuel line I got from rural king. Cant remember what size it was but the inlet on the carb is pretty small on these hondas.

Well every post I make starts with "Well'.............but I'm back working on this thing again and I finally have time to work on my own things but unfortunately College starts back the 16th so I'm not sure how long that'll last. I ended up pulling the dash and gas tank support out to repaint them and to also clean up everything.

For the gas tank support, I welded up all the extra useless holes and took the whole thing down to bare metal and then re primed and painted it. Didnt take any pictures of the progress because like I said I dont have a long time before school starts back.

For the dash I made this special offset washer, and I cant think of how to describe how it works or its purpose. 

But its basically a thingy that used the big hole in the dash and drops it down smaller so the switch will go in, but it offsets it upward so that the switch doesn't hit the bottom of the dash piece that the steering shaft goes through!  scratch

Here's a picture....maybe you'll get the idea.

Anywards. Also took out the shifter plate and re-painted it too, after I put a greater bend in it because the shifter would rub it in second gear. Not necessarily a problem but its always bugged me.

I also sanded down and painted the muffler with this high temp barbecue black. I think it looks alot better!

Lastly! Here's a random picture showing the lack of a dash!

Got everything put back together and even decided to use washers on all the bolts. The dash didnt come out that good because the can of rustoleum had a clogged tip and it wasnt spraying all that good so the paint has a texture to it. I've never had an issue with the tips clogging up until recently. Now after I'm done I soak the tips in paint thinner.

I also go all my wiring straightened out and re routed it, even found a grommet that fit in one of the factory holes!

Not that I know of. I'm not too worried about because the dash piece is aluminum so it will wear out before the hood does.
 I'd probably try rapping a thin piece of rubber around your hood or dash and maybe that'll stop it.

I've wondered things like this when I'm at car shows and I see a car that's almost perfect and wonder how they keep everything so nice and yet still drive their car. I could probably eat off their engines they're so clean.
