    FYI, that hole needs to be closed up with a cover of some type....
    But the cover isn't structural at all, is it?

    Acceptable to fab a light weight fiberglass (or carbon fiber ) plate and rivet it on?

    Correct, just needs some type of a seal to keep mud/dirt/sand/water/strayanimals out of the tunnel.

    Now I see why you said it would be a pain to run a tube thru for a fuel line.

    Right?
    Not sure what to do?
    Needs to be secured in there some how?
    The idea of running fuel line down one of the body tubes doesn't appeal at all.

    Yes sir, you do not want fuel in the "interior", ever.

    Easy. Cut the hole big enough with a plasma or similar to fit an arm in there and get and either get and OE cover for it from a wreckingyard, or make your own. The metal should be plenty thick enough to tap for bolts, otherwise there are other things you can do as well for bolts.

    Mine is not in a sense, it is not that long of a run, and it is "contained."

    I used regular coiled alum fuel line, and it is inside a regular rubber hose inside the tunnel for abrasion. The tube is initially secured to the Holley blue pump with a tube nut, the pump is secured to the "pan" under the fuel tank. Been that way for 20 years.

    That might be the route.
    Getting the hole cut with a plasma will be an event.
    I don't think I have a power outlet that would support one, so the car would have to go to the cutter. Rent a trailer, arrange an appointment, etc, will end up being a couple hundred bucks and half a days effort.
    To cut a hole bigger.

    220 dryer outlet would be fine, I would think.

    Ok, I wasn't sure what a GC is workin with.

    How do plan on using the car once its back together? Street and mild trails or something requiring a little more travel?
    The reason I ask is the top part off that tunnel below the gas tank usually needs to be clearanced for the tie rods if you are using the stock steering box.
    Might be able to accomplish two issues at once.

    Street and mild trail, maybe a real mild Glamis experience.
    I don't intend to beat on it, I have quads for that.

    The steering stem needs to be affixed at the cross brace in the car. It has two verticale bungs to locate the column.
    It has a stock steering box and Rod ends, the bars the ends are attatched to appear custom made.
    There doesn't look to be any clearance issues there.

    Advise on (cheap) shocks? It has no shocks connected at the moment, two coil over type shocks hanging out back. They closely resemble stock ATV front shocks, picture a stock Raptor, Banshee, 250R, etc.

    Do these cars need a coil shock out back?

    I was thinking 4 white KYBs ?
