I'm looking for a RUST FREE fuel filler neck tube for an 80 series. I only need the long flat pipe to the tank and NOT the filler neck. So to make shipping easier to stomach I'd love to have the vertical filler neck cut off. So if you cut yours to get it out instead of lifting the body off, that may be just what I need!

I live in PA, so constantly trying to stay ahead of rust as well. I went with a similar approach, but built what you are calling the flat portion with the help of a local exhaust shop. I cut mine a little higher than you have so the joint is vertical. And it all slides back in without lifting the body/removing the mount.

The local shop used 409 stainless for the main filler tub, and I bent the smaller breather tube using 304 and then tigged them together. This approach made it very easy to reinstall and cost less that $100 if you don't include my time to bend the small tube and weld them together.
