The tank was made by Rock Valley Antique Auto and seems to fit pretty well. Since I'm going to put a BB into the car, I had them size it to use the extra space left by a stock tank bringing it to about 30 gallons capacity. This should allow me to have roughly the same range as the SB cars.

Share your thoughts.
Thanks,
Todd

Perri - I'm not sure if it is too low or not. I don't think so but this thought is only based on pics of other people's install of the Fuel Safe fuel cell. Mine appears to sit just a little higher in relation to the bottom of the frame work around the tank so I think it will end up ok when the body is on.

Alex - I'll wait until I'm driving to decide about installing a shield. At this point, I was mostly concerned about the sump area when going over speed bumps, etc.

Nbww - Again, I tried to copy the positioning of the fill point with the Fuel Safe cell. I got measurements from FF and stayed fairly close to those so I'm guessing the tank should fill fine as long as I run the vent up near the filler cap just under the body.

Michael D - Yes, those are the pickups for the fuel pump.

Joe C. - 29-30 gals.

sr71 - thanks!

Convincor - yep, it is stainless and the vent is in the top right corner. I like the shape of yours better than mine; you shouldn't have problems with speed bumps.

Thanks guys!
Todd

Snakes Skin - I will be using the normal FFR placement for the battery in the trunk.
