Have a look at a post that I suggested quite a while back: Chevy Truck Fuel tank relocating


Summit Racing has this flush-mount fuel cap:

if I may.. if you ho with a behind the plate type tank..
f body or not.. try to change the filler cap to something like the 78-88 g body neck with screw on cap.. it'll keep the fuel from trailing you on hard take offs.. and ethnol type fuels don't like vented fuel caps.. the fuel goes bad much faster.. I know it'll be a pain but a charcoal can will be your friend..
ethnol sucks in water.. when left open to the air..

I used a 1949-52 Chevy Passenger Car Steel Gas Tank on my '65 C10 Stepside.

Check out Post #8 on my build thread for photos, part numbers and drawings: http://talk.classicparts.com/showthread.php?t=13928



The tank is not visible from the rear of the truck, unlike the f-body and the Blazer style tanks:


Hope this helps!

John
