They often leak around the studs. Does it have copper crush washers on the nuts?

Take the four bottom studs out of housing , put red locktite on them and reinstall. They will not seep anymore.

Thanks for the insight Jay. I'll try that before even filling mine with fluid.

The car and project looks great! Any reason why you didn't use the Holley crossmember mount?

Also on your rear frame picture, how wide of a tire are you going to run? Those didn't look like all the parts that come in the DSE tub kit. Looks like you have a little something cooler happening there


Thanks,
Dave
