oh no, there was never any doubt in my mind. i would do the same, but ive never built anything that looked that good underneath when i was done. im a huge advocate of using your toys for what you built them for! if you didnt, id be let down. some people are into projects for the build, then sell and never use to its potential. ive never understood that personally. when i build a toy, i run it into the ground having fun with it. only way to do it imho.Built to drive my friend, no matter what the conditions are.
The fill path would be all uphill if you tried to fill from the forward fuel door. People who have tried this often have complaints about filling the tank too.So, dumb question. Can you not add a longer hose and go to the original factory fuel door or are you afraid it won't fill with out shutting off?
