Picked up my gas tank after being cleaned and sealed.  Just needs a new fuel pump.

OK, gotta ask. Why are there two fuel pump mounting rings in your tank? Are you running dual fuel pumps?

Rear Wheel Drive, the way God intended.
If a car is being pulled from the front, doesn't that mean it's being towed?

They must have used the same coating on yours as the place used on mine when I had 4 tanks done a couple of years ago. Had that same color to it. I was gonna ask what car that tank was for cause I only have one sending unit hole on mine. I see you have two holes. Good luck on it.

No, just one fuel pump. The setup is from a twin turbo 300zx.  It had the fuel pump and a level sending unit that had a hose running to the fuel pump.  Not exactly sure what it was doing, but it was on the other side of the hump in the gas tank from the fuel pump. So I figured it couldn't hurt to have it, though maybe it was working as sort of a secondary pickup, but could be totally wrong.  And figured if I was already cutting one hole in the top of my tank, it can't hurt to cut two and put them both in my stock tank.

I'm hoping the coating is good, seems like I shouldn't have any more leaking problems. but car is just a KA powered dime. See answer above lol.
