Had the day off so good progress was made on the gas tank, either aluminum or stainless, seen here in its protective frame. This fits up behind the seats from below, fastening with only two bolts – pretty sweet I think. Sketchup says it’s 14.23 gallons which is a good size. Still to be added are internal baffles, doors, filler, vent, etc, etc.

Reader Dean suggested running the coolant lines along the ouside of the chassis instead of through the chassis tubes. I’m good with that as long as it looks okay. Maybe something like those muffler covers on Cobras but smaller. The trick is finding something that requires little to no work; maybe perforated stainless sheet rolled over a form. I’m open to ideas
