where was martinsr when i was designing my truk bed? (not that i had asked for input )
i would do like he did and mount it in the top of the fender
my filler neck is really low, making it slow fill, meaning i have to stay bent over for a loong time

And now the funny part is, I will be cutting that out and filling the hole as the filler will be in the side of the bed above the right apron now.

and weld the foot and make the hinge part
