Made 6 spacers to compensate for the widening chassis web, re-drilled the holes 9 1/16" and bolted the front chrossmember in tight.

Hoping this will become the beach race/sprint/hill climb pressurised fuel tank, mounted vertically in the tail.
The tank is shaped so the filler cap should poke through the rear bodywork just right.

Spot the pump lurking within, made of brass for that period look. With a bit of modding and polishing with a neater handle it will do the job nicely. Double serendipity and happenstance work their magic again!
