Who here has a fuel cell installed with pictures?
« on: October 18, 2014, 09:31:02 AM »
Between my bad memory and the stupid search engine I am getting really frustrated. >:(
 
I mainly am looking for the person who has the cell installed using angle steel under the car and also has the battery located next to the cell, but any others are welcome to chime in.
 
I'm getting ready to start installing mine and need a refresher on how the other person did his, since that is more or less the way I want to do mine.
 
Note to self and others. Save things you think you MIGHT do even if the plans don't call for it at that moment.  :-[
 
Thanks,

I have an 8 gallon cell in mine. I'll get some pics in a day or two, if you still need them.

I think don33 did what you're talking about, but his car is a sedan. He has a project thread in the Turbo forum.

Thanks, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks! That was one of the ones I had seen before and couldn't find again.
I wasn't searching the turbo forum. My bad.
