          Looks pretty good just one thing
          Where are all of your bungs or hose fittings?
          When i build tanks usually i put all that stuff in before i close it up so i can get the chips out.

            You beat me to it...just as Has2 mentioned it may have been easier to mount your AN fittings to the sump area as well as your vent line on top before welding? It's your show but that's my $0.02's worth.

            Nice work and nice ride...mid 11's are no joke. On that note I am amazed at how many people at the strip think 11's are slow...too bad their grocery getter runs in the 18's!

              i have still yet to order the fittings,vent and the cap. really in no hurry to get it in will pry do it this winter and tub the car at the same time. i was just looking for something to weld to try out the welder, on the other note i still have to cut a hole in the top for the cap i figured i could just put my hand through the hole before i put the cap on to put the bulkheads in. then use a shop vac to get all the shavings out.

                you should be able to get it clean then. Just make sure you get everything out and you are goin to presure test it right.

                  yes im going to weld a threaded 3/4 pipe to the top in the middle of the circle for the cap to put air to it. use soap and water to test it then cut out the circle.

                        thats not bad at all. I love getting material from work. I have built a few tanks that way. Did you shear it at work too. And once again very nice.
