2-27-2018 Yes, the car is tilting! That's as far as I dared yet though. There are connecting rods (square channels) that attach the two end parts. Two parts of these connecting rods were missing from the package. I contacted the place I bought it yesterday. They were excellent and they were shipped today and they will be here on Thursday.

3/2/2018 Got the two missing part for the rotisserie. So now the two ends are solidly connected.
3/4/2018 Well almost rotated it 90 degrees. A little scary! I still need to adjust the CG. It took a fair amount of effort to rotate it at the angle shown.
When moved the gas tank around, there was a lot of stuff rolling around inside. I put a magnet on a string and put it inside then rolled the tank around. I took the magnet out and it was covered with rust. I kept doing this until it didn't make any noise. There weren't any leaks and looking inside it really didn't look that bad. Eastwood has a gas tank cleaning/sealing kit I'll get. The problem is there is a screen inside at the pickup that I need to take out. There is a big flat bolt on the bottom of the tank that I couldn't get loose.
3/30/2018 Here is Charleston Surface Blasting glass bead blasting parts of the car. It was a rainy day so he only did parts from the car.
