It's kind of odd that Ford made the lines on the tank straight, whereas the body has a nice curve. We're going to remake the tank and rear spreader bar to have the same subtle curve as the body.
|First thing we're going to do is make a new piece for the inset area of the tank. Here we're getting the proper curve with the roller.|
|Now in the English wheel, we'll give it the concave curve to match the body curve.|
|Phil made the rear spreader, doing a fantastic job at matching the body curve. Here we have the correct curve in the tank piece.|
|We've added the inset with a bead roller, using a step die.|
|We're now ready to add the piece to the tank.|
|We've cut the section out of the tank that we're going to replace.|
All welded and back in the car. A nice subtle change that really improves this area.
