Re: Gas Tank Plumbing

I’ll try to attach a pic. My tank was too high to accommodate running the fuel line to the gunwale. The fill tubing with the metal in it would not bend to get to the gunwale. Had to make access thru the deck. Not an answer to your question. Just an option

Re: Trailer Paint Question

The “election infection” virus shut down many of the lumber mills in the midst of a huge building boom. Lots of folks taking on DIY projects and record home construction.
