Just getting started but the build should move along now.
Here is the trailer I bought of CL. It is a 3.5' x 10'
I picked up this big charcoal grill of CL that I will use as my fire box. I will be cutting the lid in half length wise and welding the rest shut. this is mainly so I can weld it on the tank and still be able to open the lid.
Went and picked up this fuel tank this morning. Got it for free from a buddy. Its 36" in diameter by 66" long. The stand it came on will come in handy for parts. I was in the tractor bucket when I took the pic.
The trailer got cut up the other night. I didn't want the wood deck and the side rails were flimsy so they will get replaced later.
I took the tank cradles off the stand and welded them on the trailer. This worked out perfect as it pretty much put the tank right at the height I wanted it.
Tank is sitting in place but not welded down. That won't happen for a while.
With the tank in its home location I started to fit in the fire box to see how its all going to lay out.
That is where it sits now. I am going to start getting the firebox cut up and mounted on the tank then will be cutting the lid on the tank. Once the tank and firebox get mounted, I will get the whole rig sand blasted and finish up all the goodies I plan on adding to it.
