Hey Magnus, this may be a stupid question, but what is that finish on the SWB horn grills? Did you just strip the chrome off? I like that detail, and might implement in my 71'. Thanks!

SWB horn grill

If you are talking about my silver 65 ....
the 4 screw grills are brass..
chrome stripped -NOT replated,,,
something a little different- seldom seen

LWB grills are pot metal.
the 2 are different sizes & not Interchangeable.

o.k..

CENTRE HOOD FILL GAS TANK.

This is the 3rd one i have done.
each one has been a differnt process.
AS always they are many ways to achieve this look

LIKE ALL THINGS WORTH DOING IT TAKES A LITTLE TIME & PATIENCE

i started with a new 74 & up tank & a centre hood fill kit.

here goes.

1 -first make sure the hood is fit & aligned right.
2- then install the tank & bolt it in.
3- find centre line of hood.
4- measure lots of times.
5-test fit
6-cutt/drill
7-hope for the best







we made a piolt hole & then drilled a 4 " hole for a test fit with the hood fill pipe

next up was finding the down pipe postion /centre of the gas tank..




the 4 " hole would have worked...

BUT the centre hood filler kit came with a clean finished plate with a 5" hole.
this will give a great finished look..


next up -cut out for the plate..




then crimp the edge -so the plate fits flush..




more measureing -repostioning & fine tuning !!




then the 4 " cut hole in the tank



then more black art magic & here you are

approx time 5-6 hours all told.
one of those things best not rushed...

well worth the effort as they always look cool in a racey way when finished.

the stove pipe is welded to the tank.

we cut a 4 " hole -poistined the pipe @ the correct angle & height
and welded in place.

No need to subscribe, it seems that once the thread starts to fall, it gets bumped up by more photos, comments, etc.

Mods should make it a sticky and be done with it. Save Magnus all the time and effort.
