The vapor collected in that area and seeped into the passenger compartment thru the gaps in the front of the doors. The more spirited I drove the car the worse the smell. I fixed it by taking the top caps off the rollover valves and drilling and taping (1/8 NPT) for a barb fitting then running a piece of neoprene fuel line from the barb fitting under the car into the rocker pannel area. The fuel smell went away.
You may want to take a look at where your fuel tanks are vented to see if you have a similar issue...............
Thanks for the advice. I did make some changes to the fuel venting some time ago, agree. When on the track the first time my eyes watered so bad from the amount of fuel fumes. I am assuming it is not the case today as fuel has a very specific odor. What I am left with after driving is head aches and exhaustion.
I'll keep working on it.
