I can already get about 26 gallons with my old design with a flat floor, and I am moving some stuff around, so I may be able to get about 30 max. I may dish the floor a little, but it makes building the tank a lot more of a pain.If your building a fuel tank consider adding the bowl to the floor like factory, that will add a couple more gallons. If you did the bowl on both sides that would add even more.
Tis merely a flesh wound, pour some Jameson on it and move along.I got the cage painted to keep it from rusting in case it needs to stay outside at some point. View attachment 2469382

I also managed to do this. Not really sure how, but the grider kicked it back into my finger. Not the most fun thing to pull out.
Wear your gloves.

I'm glad it was pretty close to the end of my finger so it wasn't super fleshy. It still sucked to pull out cause it was continually cutting.Tis merely a flesh wound, pour some Jameson on it and move along.
In all seriousness, that looks pretty gnarly.
I didn't reuse many factory pieces, but where I did, I plucked the Toyota connector off the old harness and added it onto the Painless harness. This would allow me to replace any Toyota parts and have them connect into the harness. I think the only electrical bits I used from the original truck was the steering column and the wiper motor. I didn't re-use any switches, nor the heater.Did you reuse factory connectors when you did yours?
