I have to pay a shop to to it, dont have the resourses.
This is biggest expense, $625, but it will be worth it. It will be approx. 18 gallons, hidden under floor and wont have to open back doors to put gas in.

Thanks everyone

Draggnastro: It is kinda of an allusion, the back is actually higher than the front. I raised the rear a couple inches in the back, from where it was before. Some reason, the design Gen 2, extended front & rear, makes the front look higher. I really dont want to go lower in the front, front bumper is only 6 inches of the ground already.

Awe, come on, a few more inches won't hurt anything... Looking very nice!

I talked to a guy in the Maumee area (suburb of Toledo) while I was home that has 2 tubbed big block Astro's. One is painted like a checker cab which you may know. He attends the Woodward cruise. He was pulling the engine from the second Astro when I stopped to see him. He said it will be back on the streets this week.
