    Working slowly on pluming and pulling seats and water fall to get tank out. Going to make two tanks under top one and have to plum them up, so need to weld bungs into bottom outside of top tank. I am into cab so will put in more side protection.

    Had to put battery in to pump out tank, so i put oil in engine and turned it over for oil psi-- had leak at remote filter, yes hard to get at. Put new male fitting and hoses
    on now all good.
    Got tank out and put fittings on to go to new tanks-- because of roll cage had to cut part of bracket off to get out.IMG_8441.JPG took pump out and resealed, will keep sender.
    Worked on making new tanks, cardboard patterns, hoping to rearrange parts for other side.IMG_8443.JPGIMG_8445.JPGIMG_8444.JPG

    Ok this a little bigger than the other tank, but it is TEN usable gallons! So if we look at nine gallons each gives me eighteen gallons + top tank!
    Extra weight is low and just in front of rear axle.IMG_8454.JPGIMG_8455.JPGIMG_8457.JPG

    Had to make a header tank because the first way i was going to plume tanks did not work. IMG_8466.JPGIMG_8467.JPG
    Still learning to TIG, the first tank i used heaver aluminium and MIG welded then TIG for thinner, but the TIG would not work with MIG weld-bad things in weld.
    Then cut that off and used 1/8 aluminium with TIG- but the eage that was plasma cut the TIG did not like! Yes-clean-clean!

    Well after some redo's got the in and out piping done. IMG_8497.JPGIMG_8498.JPGIMG_8499.JPGIMG_8502.JPG
    Now to get the filler tube and vents from tanks done.
    Yes the back side looks off, but had them looking very good but hose ran into tank. Cut out with hole saw, could not weld next to heat exchanger so cut out and built up on back side then put in pipes and filled in holes!

    Got the ac lines and wiring done, well check for leaks. The water lines for air to water coolers are are done and ready to check. working on last part of fuel line. So we are getting down to turbo speed , and cortex boost controller, need to run both inside cab. And one thing more to run to back, the fuel return line. Then putting car back together. Ready to get it tuned and see what we get!
