No whistle even at 65mph..

Was not sure if it would whistle or not.

Will you be doing something about the gas fill? What if you have stock/equipment that ends up covering the grate? Just climb under to put fuel in? And how do you feel about those hinges?

This for me was one of those "Picture is Worth a Thousand Words" projects I could not wrap my head around what you had in mind. Now it makes sense

Looks good. Let us know how often you take it apart now to not use it.

I might do something about the gas fill in the future. A pocket with cover.

Sadly I have never seen a great way of mounting a fuel filler on a cab and chassis.

I dislike them enough that I was willing to design it this way. Both hinged section open independently.

Just fill up before loading gear onto the bed.. I get 450 miles to the tank full.

Thanks.. With luck it will all work out without having to make another one. Thankfully now that I have made the first one another one would only take me 2 days..

The jig for cutting the slots took a few hours..

I doubt I will ever take it apart.. LOL.. It's more the idea that I can add things as needed by removing a few wedges.

The first items on the list are a head board and 8 tie down anchors.

Just no time and not that important at the moment.

I really need to get back onto the school project.

The Manlift is not getting fuel and I replaced the line and the solenoid for the fuel cut off seems to be working.

New carb is 2000.00 so looking at fitting something else that is cheap.

today I used the truck to go pick up a vacuum/blower unit for the fume extraction system.

The truck loaded easily by hand and it was easy to fuel up with the little fuel door. I was also able to fill it with the use of only 1 flap door.

Nice thing was I could fill it at full on locked position and there was no spit back. Clicked off like it was supposed to.

Before this I had to trickle it in or else it would shutoff/kick out. And If I were lucky enough to find that just right position where I could go mid hold position it would spit back.

No whistle at all even at 80mph.
