thats some slick work. love the latches, both ov'em.
A very nice *DIY*...
wats the go with the wiring?
Very nice setup, the latch button is killer too!
Sorry to be OT, but do I see '52 Buick wheel covers on that wagon? What wheel/width was used? (Looking to mount some on my Chevy!)
That's some primo work right there.
Man that's some great work! Thanks for documenting it for us.
Nice attention to detail!
really nice way to hide your filler, looks awesome!
Excellent job. You've got some great skills. It looks like it could come from the factory that way.
WOW , I'm really blown away from everyone compliments thank you all verry much .
On the hinge its a lot of trial and error you have to start from the mounting point which you want clostest the out side as u can get , then just keep playing around with paper patterns till it has room to open . i hope this helps if you have aney more questions ide be glad to help out as much as i can.
yes , there 52 buick caps on the wagon, its my personal project ive been working on for a while now , the wheels are from wheel vintiques there a unie lug 15 x 7
here the build thread if you wanted to get some more info or a better look at it
That's great tech...thanks for posting it!
heck there is another light on the other fender for dual tanks
your clasp edge? is it beveled so it keeps getting tighter or will it possibly loosen up with wear ?
maybe a nylon nub on the inner flat to keep it seated closed ?
speaking of the ground hope its not thru your clasp :O
do like the quick fill cap !
changing bulbs just got easier too
run the wires in rubber fuel lines and triple the ground and yer golden
Interesting read on how you did that. I have always wondered how you would set one up. Great post with detail and pics to describe it!
WHO'S THE BIG WINNER?!?!?!
Too cool and great work man!!!!
The whole idea is great but the latch is pure genius. Thanks for posting such clear photos and descriptions.
That's way beyond Nice Work..... It displays true craftsmanship and a sense of innovation.
What could be better than making something like that from stuff laying around the shop.
Very impressive, indeed
Too bad we don't have pump jocks anymore, ('Cept Oregon) I always liked messin' with their heads with my '56 Chevy.
Well thought out. A true Hot Rodder can't even do laundry with out cars on the brain.
Thanks. (I couldn't get the link to work, though.)

Thanks you all , for the kind words
