Updates

Hey guys i have a few more small updates for you..
Today we fabbed up a fuel cell mount

we started with some 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 angle iron to make the frame...



and then we made some tabs for the straps and mounting the frame...





Then we cut the straps to length and started bending..

Got the fuel cell mount all welded up and ground smooth, painted it this afternoon. Should have it back in the jeep tomorrow. The front axle is assembled now. I didnt get a pic of that for you guys but its looking pretty good now. Next step will be triming the cowl to allow the hood to open and then some final welding on the firewall. Pretty soon Josh will be ordering a set of corbeau seats for driver and passenger. thats all the updates for now..

Did you put anything between the straps/base and the alum. tank? I was just curious if it would rub after a while and cause a problem? Build looks good btw

Havent installed the tank just yet, but ya we have some rubber strips that will go around the base and under the tank straps, should keep it from rubbing anywhere.. i will have some more pictures some time that will show how we did it

Sounds good to me... I was wanting some ideas on a good way to mount the exact same tank in my rig. I may have to copy
