    nice, what did you take the gas door out of? I have been looking for something that will fit, every thing I find has to much curve in it.

    It's off an 82 pick up. I used the original fill neck and cap inside the door. I had to cut and re-weld to get the proper angle on the filler neck. I would suggest having an extra one on hand just in case. The filler neck attaches to the rubber insert inside the door. Benefit , if you overfill it runs down on the inside instead of over the paint. I like this style because it doesnt have the bump out on the flip door.

    There was a lot of rust in that area so it doubled as a patch.

    Cool

    Good looking work being done.
    I used the fuel door and a section of 1/4 panel from an S10 in the "Beast".
    Those new lower rocker sections look pretty sweet..
    Is there a color in mind yet ?

    i fitted a 12 bolt posi from a b body car to the van, it has the same width, i understand that the car 12 bolt is actually stronger than the 12 bolt truck, plus I already had it. and I picked up a set of 15 x10 rallies for it. I think 295 50 15 will fit without rubbing inside.

    And all this time, I thought our VCVs were a unique width.
