Stefan hurry and finish that gas lid/ tail light thing so we can see it!!!
Thanks for all the coments i have get
I have started on the rest of the tank lid componets but there is some work left before i have it ready mayby next week or the week after that before i is ready with it.
Over to the front seat parts
I have weld bracket to hold plywood board inside the frame of the backs and prime the frame
Which way are you going to swing the light assembly?
I think the pump nozzle would have to take up most of the area below the light.
Swing to the outside leaves room for a hinge inside the quarter. Cable latch or something to keep it closed maybe. Just my thoughts.
Either way, I cant wait to see what your ideas are and how you will make it work.
Maybe swing up?
You will see ( moving back wards and rotate it )
What kind of gas cap you are going to use?
I think custom motorcycle pop-up style cap could work with your shoebox.They are available in smaller sizes than the regular caps and they need less space than regular cap when closed.
But if you like the idea,instead of buying expensive weld-on cap,you probably fab you own.Just a wild guess
I have mading one and it is soon ready.
The only special on cap is the size and it is made of Stainless Steel but that's standard for me, like most of my fabrications. I have think of that ide but it was to big my is little smaler ø44mm [1 3/4"]
this i cant wait to see. crazy that you take the hard way of doing this. but i think its cause you like giving yourself a challenge!

Spring loaded pal to keep it open, slight pressure twist downward and close...
Thanks for all coments
I have worked little with my front seat backs
I have put in plywood board in the back frams to front seat.
Next thing i will do is plywood yo package tray
I think to use steel brackets on the under side for get the right shape
every time i want to say something i look at the next picture and my jaw hangs open , you are dr.frankinstein , you my friend could just take a sheet of metal and make a car . dammmmmmmmmmmm
Her's the bezel screw to the holder.
I shall use led lights that have flat backside
her's the inside of the filler cap
I shall do a test tomorrow if i have time.
There will be weld in a pipe for easyer filling in the to of the filler neck and a vent pipe to
very cool !
Very cool indeed!!
I like it, yes sir, I like it alot.
Good work Stefan,keep it up!
Amazing fabrication work as usual Stefan ! I love the tail light filler!
Thanks for all coments
Her's a update of the filler neck and right rearlight
Her's a test of the filler asembly. The light is rotated.
Thats need some adjustments so the filler cap is more easy to take out.
And i need to fix a not so hard spring on the inside, now is near imposeble to move the light without pushing it on the inside.
Her's the light move to closed position
after some adjustments of inner edge the filler cap is easer to open and remove
Great work, Stefan
i see You are improving your building skills with every day and You have improved your english too
Stephan, very nice set up for the taillight/filler. Is the threaded piece that lets the light rotate, hollow for wires to go throught for taillight?
yes the 10mm pipe are both for rotating and wires.
It is 12 pipe it rotate in welded to the holder
and 10 mm pipe is treded with M10x1 treds
As usual your a step ahead in your planning and execution.
thanks for all coments
I have cut some plywood
Her's the package try with plywood
The metals parts thats laying in the tray is only for push it down so it lays well.
I think to put in bracket in the back side so it can hold is shspe without wights on it
I must adjust it little now it's totaly tight fit and inposseble to dress and fit after that
I cut a door side too but i must buy more playwood to next.
I like of the VW 0val, I have a VW too, a 65 1200 all original . Can you send more pics ? Thanks in advance !
If you want see more of the oval
Is there a thred on swedish on the oval
If you want to see it in english insted so i drive it in google translate
Thats a hell of an idea, even better if you could make it work! Interested in seeing the finish product, good luck!
Could you please post a picture of the back side of the filler neck, I want to see how that spring arraingment works.
Super work my friend, I Love your craftsmanship.
Thanks for the coments
The only pic i have on the backside
There is a 12x1 pipe that steer the light holders pipe (10x1) so it can't move axial way
