    Thank you Mygasser, Discododge, Capp, Sjb, Fugman, Dutchrod, Smurf, Speedepop, Kapri, V8moggy, Nojive55, Bigfoot, Hurtz,
    your interest and comments are really encouraging, I tend to think of myself as "not quite a real hot rodder" as I'm messing with old taxi bits.

    Initially I thought I could use the boot lid, welded to the surrounding metal, to form the lower part of the back of the cab.
    So I cut out the number plate light area and the number plate recess and plated it roughly. But when I offered it up it was just going to be too complicated to get all the curves to blend in. Its now going rusty in my back yard, but dont worry, i dont waste much, I'll cut it up and use the metal for something. For example, I needed a battery box cos I was moving the battery to the back, so I made one up using old bits of taxi bodywork. Its not pretty but it will do the job, it wont be seen in the finished truck, and it cost £0 !!






    Didnt realise how bad that photo. Sorry. My garage is very small and its difficult to get in the right position for a decent picture.

    Love your approach to this and the "nothing goes to waste" philosophy. Admire the amount of cutting and welding you're into as well, at this point I'd be sat head in hands surrounded by oddshaped bits of sharp metal with holes burnt through them. Get the proportions right and you'll have a cracking truck there, but where are the fares gonna sit?

    I also like the back window/door treatment. I thought from one of the pics you were going for a 3 piece back window, but i suppose it would be tricky to get the curved glass.

    Loving the build i often looked at fx4's as a good doner car, i may well go this route when i do my project
    The taxi that was in OSR was the older fx3 but cool in my book..

    Just a Car Guy: Another look at the El Guapo, the paint has been upgraded in a unique way

    Well its been a busy couple of weeks, but finally I got back to project today.

    Taxi fuel tank will do the job fine, caked in 20 years of dirt and sticky underseal paint that cabs get sprayed with each year for overhaul...


    So i gave it a scrape off and a coat of black hammerite

    I removed the old feed pipe and fuel return pipe which are too small, 10mm pipe now soldered into drain plug, using original gauze filter


    I looped out the 2 original pipes from the tank - the simplest way out - typical!

    that gauze filter may not flow enough fuel for the blown 400 small block mate. better off with some kind of high flow inline filter.
