Here's the tank. I have to close off fuel fill and relocate it to middle top.

It would have been so easy to just use a fuel cell like 100% of people who build hot rods, but no I had to go old school. I bought this tank spur of the moment. I loved the shape, it stands up right on its own and it looked like it would fit in the rumble trunk. Its a 48-52 Ford pickup tank and holds 20 gallons.

04-30-2011 08:51 PM 1930u Rumble Coupe
When I started the body work I decided to keep the rumble seat. This was absolutely one of the most diffcult projects on the car. The rumble lid and the body opening were destroyed but it worked out pretty well.

My next problem- I have to install a 48-52, Ford pickup truck, 20 gallon gas tank in the rumble trunk area saving room for the rumble seat.

04-30-2011 07:57 PM 1930u More parts on the way
I guess for now you could say I'm in a holding pattern waiting on a few items to arrive. Weiand sent me the wrong blower belt with my kit and I have idler pulley alignment problems. I also have to rebuild the carbs and add high flow needle and seats, stiffer power piston springs and re-jet for the blower application. Also waiting on the carb stud kits.

I intend to start the engine and break in the cam before I put the body back on.
