    Nice, is that a spring loaded flap for filling?

    Started work on the 12v generator bracket, searched everywhere and no one seems to make one. Will post more photos once it’s all welded up and installed.

    I dunno how I missed this thread but your "neurosurgeon level" attention to detail in this piece is unparalleled. You sir, are a steely-eyed missile man, hell bent on perfection.

    Now I have to stop because I was showing my wife this thread and she just accused me of having a mancrush. :D

    Nice looking piece there. Is that hammer tone paint or some other coating or process to get the part looking like it was forged?
