    your local autoparts store. Not oreileys or autozone, but the one downtown that sells mostly to small garages. I used JIC fittings on mine and they work great at a fraction of the cost. Don't get ripped into the -8AN bullshit, it's the same thing, one's alum and the other's steel, whoopdedo.

    As for the bungs, try www.austinhardware.com

    As for filler necks, try www.rciracing.com

    HTH,

    all BS aside--look into the circle track racing scene---get magazines, catalogs, etc.---for whatever reason they sell all the stuff we look for way cheaper. (EX. alum radiator (you figure out dimensions. $130.---32 gal. fuel cell $189))
