My Trunk

Okay, I can't post anything into my Project Journal, so I though I's show a little bit of what I've been up to. Please bear with me, as I am not a great Computer picture posting person, so this may be disjointed and hard to follow. I will be trying to re-size stuff for a bit-

'35's didn't have an enclosed Trunk, and I wanted a flat Trunk. I wanted to be able to work on my Fuel Tank Sender, and Fuel Lines-when I had Rock Valley make my Tank I had them put in provisions for an Electric Fuel Pump (in case I wanted to go Fuel Injection down the road), so I had to do some thinking-here's what I came up with, as I also wanted to be able to service it easy (hence the Dzus fasteners)-

Here's my first attempt to post pictures-

Last one,. I am a very poor picture taker, and it looks better in person-btw, posting pictures (in the right size is a real pain)-
