I finally got my gas tank mounted. Everything is mounted in rubber straps. Got the metal straps and t-bolts from Tanks inc. The top metal frame work is tacked in place, it will be finish welded by a friend of mine (don't trust my welding).
If you see any problems with my installation please tell me. If it's one thing i don't want to fall off it's my gas tank!

Nice tank installation. If anything, its overkill. Two pieces across the top will keep it from going up. Those straps would hold a 50 gallon tank. I think you're good.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I just got a 47 to 53 Chevy pickup bed from LMC Truck. The quality was only fair. First thing i did was to rip open two fingers on the esp welds, most all of them will cut you. Why they didn't spend a minute removing the nibs before putting on the coating is a mystery to me. The majority of the bolt holes were off and had to be drilled slightly oversize. I guess you do get what you pay for, it will be fine after a little body work and filler for my truck. If you are building a really nice truck spend a few hundred more and get a quality bed.

After measuring carefully several times, the bed will have to be shortened 27" and will end up 53" long. Have to remove 6" from the width.Attachment 144110

You can see the misalignment on the top bolt, no way to get a nut on it.

2 days after taking these photos i fell down the front steps while pressure washing and screwed up my back muscles. Been a week and i still can't do anything, Doc says it's gonna take some time to heal.

Don't know why pics didn't show up.
Click on the attachments and they will
