 Thanks for the heads up Harv, It's nice to see the details that go to my wall hanger. Backwards or not it's still a good looking tank.
 Hows your tank comming Jan?

 I know what you mean about the "BAD" white stuff Jan. I live in Idaho @ 5800ft & we had a deep winter this yr. It looks like spring has come a little earlier than usual & I've built some 10ft piles of the stuff with my loader looking for hard ground.
 Your new tank looks like a real clean piece, Lots of work but they just don't seem to build them selves do they!
 I'm building a 4WD, 2 engine streamliner right now, it just takes sacrifice. Three weeks ago I had a pile of steel on the floor, today I have the rear axle mounted, both engines & trans mounted & I'm working on water tank & fuel tank. It doesn't make any difference where in the world we live, we are just dedicated crazy people.
 Keep the progress coming. Sid.

Wow 5 year since last post. The tank build is going really slow. But I havent given up. 2 kids a new job and some custom cars the last 5 years. The plans have changed many times over the last 5 years. Got a New and bigger tank, tank number 3 smiley So I had to build a New frame again. Now we are going to start with a Chevy 383. cheap and easy hp. Here is some pictures of the tank. Hope it will not be 5 years to the next post..

Jan your belly tank is coming along nicely. 
   One thing I know about tanks there's going to be a lot of items placed inside that small space. If you decide to one day run the car your going to need two fire bottles a large water tank for cooling the motor. Also a good sized battery to power everything a transmission cooler if you run more than a mile the list will get longer as your build continues. Next you will find when you add your safety gear the fire suit, helmet and support, fire gloves, five point belts and shoes the shifter for the transmission gas and brake pedals the drivers position will become very tight. My lakester wheel base of 136 inches allowed me to fit all the above plus more the drop tank body I used was 13 feet 6 inches long and 31 inches at its widest point everything was tight in that space.   cheers

Good to see your dream is not lost & now you have a helper too.
What's are your plans, to race it or street it?
