Hi Avelars!  I can't find the particular post you mentioned, and I'm not quite sure what information you are seeking.  Either a junkyard or ebay are probably your best bet for something like a license plate bracket.

Hello everyone.  Seen a post on here from several years ago.  This was regarding brackets of some sort that was purchase at auto zone for a front licence plate.  Any ideas

gas tank for 72' Runabout
« on: January 16, 2017, 08:12:24 AM »
Hi all, does anyone know if the Spectra Premium gas tanks sold for 74' and up Pintos will also fit a 72'?

Thanks in advance for any guidance here!

Richard

I have heard of people doing it. it's slightly bigger so longer straps perhaps? and you will see more of it from the back, appears to hang down more because it's bigger. I haven't done the swap myself but it's been done.

I put a later tank on a 72. It does work, but as stated it is larger and you lose the taper look. You would have to either use the later straps or bend your own out of flat stock. I also used the sender for the later tank and soldered shut the return outlet
