Awesome; congrats! I'm betting you could sell some T-shirts with a picture of Rufus on the front to help finance your shop. Put me down for one; one of my favorite RRR builds!

I went to the Bunny Run in Jackson, TN this weekend and found a gas tank that looks like it will work for this thing. It is a plastic fuel cell with an aluminum sheet metal cover. I can't find anything like it online, but it looks like it will work for me.

When I got home, I posed it for pictures. looks like I have room to move it up and back if needed.

Yep. You gotta have an open mind when you walk through a swap meet...gas tank wasn't really on my list of stuff to look for. But I think it may turn out better than I could have hoped for. I will have room for any kind of shock absorber I want to run on the sides. ....and the weight won't be way past the rear wheels. My previous idea was a triangle shaped tank that would have gone from the axle to the point.

This tank takes up more "trunk room", but I think the safety part is more important.

I think I am going to ditch the aluminum skin and incorporate a steel skin in my trunk floor.
