I see that we have discussed this many times in the past, but once more wouldn't hurt. I have a strong gas smell inside the car. (It's a 71 gt BTW) I pulled the tire rack out and found all of the lines were rotted. Now the problem, I have 2 T fittings and no idea how to route the vent lines. I'm sure that I could do it my way, but my way might not be right. Any help would be great! This forum has helped me get a abandoned GT that has not been on the road since 1988 up and running in under 10 months! Far from finished, but these cars are fun to drive!

when i saved it, it just came up as a whole bunch of numbers and letters...(about 4-6 pages worth of nothing) could i have this in a wrong format? and if so how could i fix it?
