Sparky,
How about a picture of your tank so we can see what your starting point is.

Wicked!

I love this 'old school' type lakester. Have you guys done any drawings or sketches the look your going for?

Whew,  the OLD dog struggled with my wifes camera and software---only had to try fifty 1000 times---the sad thing is ---*I am SURE we will not rember what all we did  lol

RAT-a-Tack will PROBABALY end up looking almost exactly like the Ack's Liner with 4 wheels without the different slope angle for the canopy view ports.  The front axle will be attached on the front of this tank with the cut off blunt nose over it. 21 or 22x15 fronts and 24.5x16 rears

Bill, your instructional video is on the way to AZ, I think it will show you how to make the blunt nose.  All you need is a planishing hammer and an english wheel....  shocked 
This is going to be a cool lakester folks.

SS #1 It all ready has a blunt nose---back to the shop with the camera!

The nose we cut off is only about 7-8" longer than what you see. 

Thanks SS #1I look forward to seeing how you guys incorporated the internal bulkhead hoops.  I will wait to see before we cut anything or crawl in and drill the bulkheads off the hoops.

The 2 biggest trade offs (ie UNRESOLVED ) as I see them:

1. The HP we give up while trying to keep the exhaust inside the body.

2. The bottom of the car at the rear wheel area--- Aero vs Downforce

This looks like the beginnings of a Prussian "tack" helmet to me grin  I see some UNUSUAL nose art  (like maybe a Salt Rat with a Tack helment just itching to be splattered up here!!!! lol

PS
Wow:  I didn't forget  from picking up the camera, downloading, renaming, resizing, attaching to this post, to checking, and editing this note--less than 5 min---

PSS SS #1 remember this was an internal bomb bay ferrytank, hence the unusual shape

Hey Bill, there is probably a menu selection on the camera that will take a picture small enough to post... of course that might mess up what you have learned  grin
