    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.

    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"]

    Thanks for all coments

    Her's a update of the filler neck and right rearlight

    [​IMG]

    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.

    [​IMG]

    Her's the light move to closed position

    [​IMG]

    after some adjustments of inner edge the filler cap is easer to open and remove

    thanks for all coments

    I have cut some plywood

    [​IMG]

    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

    [​IMG]

    I cut a door side too but i must buy more playwood to next.
