Not trying to make anyone jealous. Just doing it up the way I want it. Needed a new tank and this was an easier option in the long run. I appreciate the feedback :handgestures-thumbupright:

Battery, finish the wiring, electric fuel pump, get it running and then the drive belt, hydraulic hoses, power steering valve, although not necessarily in that order. :scratchead:

Just finished up a “Lambo” style hood hinge assembly. Haven’t built the rest yet.

Second photo is where I got the idea.

Just sayin' Rich...

VW paint, Lambo hinges, and now a radiator too.

Why not give it a whirl?

These are very cool Rich!  I can’t wait to see “mock up” pics of these on Skittles in a test run.  I’ve never personally cared for the “hinge” or latch design of the GT-14.  I think this is a super cool modification that is also functional.  Please keep all the dimensions in case one of us (me) would like to implement it on Their GT-14:handgestures-thumbupright: in the future!  Great work as always

The person that made these hinges had his laser cut. I had to make these by hand (yes the one in the picture :D). They are as close as I can get them. I still have to final grind them and get some nylon washers to go between them. I do not know if this would work with a stock fuel tank. Not there yet.
