MacNoob, that's a pretty full day's work. Good job.
LOL that was more like three weeks of slow fiddling, interrupted by a 10 day wait for the new sway bar, all finished up this weekend.

In some of those horrendous mid 60s / early 70s crashes, they’d leave the pits with 75 gallons of fuel, try to make up lost time on cold tires, make a tiny mistake, and hit the wall in a huge fireball. Nasty.

75 gal that's enough for a nice camp fire. Where were these tanks placed on the car ?

I replaced the heater hoses finally, I had to cut one if them 2 years ago because it was leaking the clamp. This time there was 2 pin holes and I dont feel like removing them again so I ordered both of them (Blue Box) from FCP.
The sad part is after the installation was completed I went for a test drive and my R/R coil went...Krunch and Snap!! Sometimes I feel like I cant win yah know. So my next post on this thread should be...I just installed the Lesjofors Rear coil springs on our 2004 XC70.

Not sure! - imagine the volume of a 55 gal drum, plus more! I think the driver was surrounded by fuel. Not sure when fuel cells became required. The reference I found just now was 1973. It varied with the era and rules, but for a long time those were home-built sorts of cars. So 75 gallons was 450 lbs...!!
