    Both of your cars have been inspiration for mine (I'm not quite as advanced as them, though)! I also was lucky enough to copy the Fordson tank!

    I'm going for the 30's, 40's 50's, 60's kind of Traditional Hot Rod Custom Lakes Racer Gow Job type of build. :D

    Rex,

    Love the look of yours, any side pic with you in it to see if you ride down "in" yours with the added length.
     
  7. Hey Beau - how's that Fordson tank repair going?

    Great progress on the rest of the car BTW.

    Well, I decided I'm no advanced enough to repair it yet. I have been practicing on other stuff, learning how to hammer and shape metal. Hopefully in the next few months I'll start working on it. In 6 days it will be my one year mark. I'm shooting to have the rear suspension done so I can finally have a roller.
     
  11. A great deal of the value of those tanks is in the original stamped end panels. The reproduction tanks don't have them and they are sought after. Might be worth seeing what they go for on eBay and buying another Fordson tank to work on.

    They are pretty thick, and I want to learn, so I figure it's worth a shot. I might actually shorten it just a bit anyway. So it'll work out. Repops are still like $400.
