Project Where'd The Money Go

Well, I've been promising to start a build thread for awhile now, and I better do it before I forget what all I've done so far. It's been a longer process than I anticipated as some other things got in the way, but we are back on it working hard now, so hopefully the updates will be worthwhile. So, without further ado....

Here is how it looked when we bought it

It's a 49-52 Chevy Sedan tank. I didn't say in the build, but it's in my sig. It's only 16 gallons so range won't be the greatest, but we wanted to make sure it was as tucked as possible. Just had to widen the gap a bit between the frames by cutting out a sliver of the frame.

The seat is very comfy. It hugs you pretty nicely. And believe it or not, that hump is soft enough that a third person can ride on it and be comfortable too.

Re: Project Where'd The Money Go

Here's what we created to hold the relays for door poppers and the alarm system. This tucks nicely up under the dash.

Re: Project Where'd The Money Go

Your tank looks awesome! I am getting ready to move my tank and can't decide which one to use. I like yours because it doesn't hang down very far. Do you remember where you got it, and how much it was?? Thanks for the info, you guys are helping me out a ton, I'm still pretty new to this.

Dang, you made me have to change my signature. This goes to show how hard this process can be. It had been awhile since I bought the gas tank and we were debating between the mid 50s and the late 40s. Well, I went and dug out my receipts and sure enough, it was a 49-52 chevy gas tank, not a 55 like I first thought. That's sad. Sorry about that. My signature has said 55 tank for I don't know how long. Ugh.

But I did find how much I paid. I got it on Ebay from a seller called Gearhead World for 212 shipped. He doesn't have any listed right now, but the tank I bought was in a box from Tanks, Inc. I went and checked and they have them there. Here's a link for ya:

http://www.tanksinc.com/index.cfm/pa...rod/prd113.htm

And we got it for that exact reason - best fitment between the rails and it didn't hang down low.

Hahaha, not a dumb question. I wondered the same thing too before I started this process. Went to a few Good Guys Car shows and saw plenty without handles so asked the 'stupid' questions myself.

When you don't have it hooked up to battery, you don't roll up your windows. Hahaha.

I'm not sure how much or little you know about it, so I'll start at the beginning. First, you buy a door pull kit. I used Autoloc 50lb pulls. When I was studying up on this, I saw varied opinions on the pull strength, but I went with what autoloc themselves recommended for my truck. You also need an alarm system as the remote from it is what you use to activate the door pulls. I wired mine up so the unlock action pulls the driver's door and the trunk button pulls the passenger side. you can also rig it up where unlock pulls both doors, but I didn't see the sense in that because if I was alone, I'd have to just pull the passenger door shut again. When you hit the lock button, it just arms the alarm as you no longer have locks that you have to lock. The wiring is a little complicated for a novice installer, but we taught ourselves using the instructions provided with the kit and by researching how relays and car alarms work on the internet. I'd definitely suggest buying a kit that includes alarm, relays, and pulls. I got mine from Ebay. Hope this helps. I probably didn't answer all possible questions, so if you have more or think of more, feel free to ask. Always happy to help a fellow board member.

As for the frame modification, It took about an inch off each side of just the bottom. A sawzall did the trick in about 10 minutes. Very easy

Hey 'Neighbor'. Will have to check out your ride one of these days soon too!

No bumper anymore. Sold it to a board member a bit back.
