This is looking good!!

I am considering the idea of getting the 275 rear shell and 250 SWB front shell; throwing in some tweaks and making a 250 GT Lusso tribute.

Gotta get my SWB done first!...

I had the same concern so I have put 5 gallons of petrol through the filler as a test (and also to test for leaks prior to bonding on the rear body of the car) with no issues at full flow.
