Well had a bit of time away and a chance to get perspective and decide what I wanted to do with the car. Came back with a bit more enthusiasm and then tonight managed to get a good few hours working on the car. Fabricated up some mounting points for the retaining straps that are going to hold the fuel cell in. These are going to be strong. Welded M8 nuts onto some 3mm plate and then welded that to some SWG16 sheet which I then folded and welded up. Might have played with the swager set in the process…

These pair of bad boys will be welded in behind the fuel cell in the hollow where the rear seats used to be and will sit flush at the same level as the boot floor. Then just need to mount the other two plates onto the bulkhead and form up a template for the retaining strap out of some steel and then I’ll get some made up out of 5mm alloy.
