Finally made some progress on the back half after some minor back injuries that is finally starting to go away enough where I can work on stuff without too much pain. This was as far as I got before I ran out of 2" tube. This morning I picked up some more 2" DOM in .0120" and .090" wall. I kicked in the frame rails a little above the axle to fit a bump stop in there and still give room for the mezzanine arm to swing. Axle will end up being pushed forward about 0.5" - 1.0" to give a little more clearance between the fuel cell and axle housing.
Still lots left to do but hopefully I cam make some more progress this weekend.

Wow. Very impressive work. It its going to be very satisfying when you are asked “who built it?” __me__. “No I mean in what fab shop?” My back yard.

Unfortunately no updates at all. Between being super busy every weekend, and weather (One weekend I had free was almost 110° out, and last weekend it rained most of the day), I have made basically no progress. I should have my hubs hopefully within the next week or so though (not that it progresses the fab portion of the build)... Hopefully I can get some time in the coming weekends to make some progress on the backhalf, then start focusing on the cage itself soon. Still SO MUCH work to do.

U how time to figure out shit like fuel pump/s, filters, fuel line type, FPR, etc
Nope, I haven't touched or thought about this thing in months which sucks. I was planning on moving so I took a break from the project but I haven't moved yet (the sellers of the house I am buying are having title issues which has caused over 60 days in delays and at least another 30 more before we can potentially close)

Sucks about the house situation.

I only brought up the ? as there was a conversion a while back about said (specifically fuel pumps) and I am currently piecing shit together. After some searching/research I ended up going with the Bosch 044 replacement pump (Bosch recently discontinued the 044), Bosch upgraded the 044 and replaced it with:

The screen is an aftermarket part along with the end that screws on the check valve (feed side) that comes with the pump (the black end allows one to fit a AN fitting). I am mounting inside the tank but the pump is designed to run externally.
