What do you guys think about adding a rumble seat in the boat-tail? Gas tank would be mounted behind the rear end. Riders feet will straddle driveshaft.

i think you should add a rumble cooler! instead of a seat.

I did more work on the rear of the body. It took a lot of fitting, but I finally go the tubes ready to weld.







And trimmed the other quarter so that it will fit over the axle.

I also played around with the rumble seat idea some more. There is room to do it.

More work on the rear framework today. I added some diagonals. They hug the body really nice.

Played around with sticking a 8 gallon fuel cell in the back (so I could do a 3rd seat). It fits pretty good. If I don't add the seat, I will still have one heck of a trunk back there. Not 100% sure 8 gallons will be enough though.

I also added some diagonals to the passenger compartment to help support the rear diagonals. This thing is slowly turning into a battleship.






I also got around to trimming the passenger side door opening.

....and played with adding a wheel under the tail.



...and trimed the tail a little more. Not 100% there, but closer. I'm sneaking up on it.
