They really wouldn't be noticeable at all performance wise so no need, nice for some bling and maybe save 1-2lbs but no needed for me. At least at this point in time.

I saw this on instagram. What exactly is it going to be? I love seeing people putting time in and actually making parts. Brings that whole Driver-Car bond to a new level.

You do great work by the way. One of the first pages I check when I log on haha.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I put alot of time into it so thanks.

Funny you ask, here is where it goes. Its all drilled and cleaned up now, just need to have the fittings welded on (I don't weld aluminum, will have FFE do it when the car gets down there)

Is your tank just bolted to the carpet, or is it through whatever metal is behind there?
Is that where your pump is permanently mounted or was it just there for the pic? Does your hatch carpet just sit on top of the pump?
And lastly, I'm guessing the line runs out one of the rubber gromets and under the car up to the front? Assuming following the fuel lines?

Thanks!

Pump is sitting there you can see the studs that hold it in the bottom right. The tank is nutserted to the metal behind and using studs to hold it.

Yea there is an open bay in the fuel line holder that works well, I installed a grommet and sealed it.

Ahh nutserts! Great idea! I actually have a whole kit I bought as I put them in my rear bumper to get rid of the self tappers used to hold the license plate on. Thanks man!
