Talking Fuel Tank after a month

It is finally done after having the car on Jacks for a month and everythng in pieces. First I got a wrong gas tank, then the right tank but missing the s pipe (had to be ordered from Germany) for connection. Then the wrong lock nuts from the dealership then I had to silver solder the connections while the tank was in the car (no gas). That one was my fault, I figured I would put the tank in and get everything ready.
So I started out one night to change some lights after I came back from skiing. This amounted to the car not starting and that seemed real strange. The end result was a bad transfer pump, fuel pump, bad gas filter, blew the relay to the fuel pump and fuel injectors, bad cold start valve, cracked distribiter and faulty coil, bad fuel line and a rusted out fuel tank that was leaking on top of the tank. Oh well, it's all fixed now and running like a charm..not bad for couple hundred thousand miles. Will never complain about this car, bought it new in 1987 and just keeps on going.
