Great to this progressing, I was wondering if I/we were ever going to see pictures again on this forum at one point.
Looks awesome do you build tanks to order ?? I'm after a under the bed aluminium tank for my 61 Chevy c10 Apache StepsideHi Stuart.
I have fabricated the fuel tank from 3mm half hard aluminium. It is baffled and foam filled internally. It has a 22 gallon (UK) capacity and the fuel filler will be trimmed back for a bed fill set up. Need to get as much weight as possible beyond/over the rear wheels to get the power planted.
Thanks for the reply I wouldn't be after foam just the usual fuel tank gubbins etc ,Hi Stuart. I build custom tanks regular. From a customer sketch and dimensions of all the parts that need fitting (filler, breather, pump outlet, fuel gauge, drain) and the location of the mount sites (or straps if you prefer)
if I use thinner material I normally swage the panels for strength. this tank Is quite thick at 3mm so no need to swage.
foam filling is expensive though! (£100 to fill this with cubes!!)
I do all this a hobby at weekends so any prices for custom work I do just needs cover the materials and gas used (with a bit on top to make it worth the hassle)
built a few in polished 316 stainless for those that want to show a bit more.
