      • I see nuttin butts flex issues there. So...……………...
        Put some more wood across the tank for support of the floor. You do not want soft spots. That's what I see now, JMHO.
        Max 24" best 16" on centers.
        Best would be to notch out those side rails, cut would to fit and lay on the vertical grain for best strength/flex.
        Place some neoprene under the vertical wood to avoid issues.
        Looking good.

        Most times I'm wrong, Most times I stand corrected..But...Sometimes I'm right.

          Hey KC thanks for the advice. you're right the piece of wood itself it very flimsy.
          we tried reinforcement from the back side with 1708 but still too flexible.
          Next plan is to add stiffeners

          • We worked on the tank area yesterday.

            the glueing of the cleats seems fine we still need some minor grinding to finalize it. amazing how many time we need to use this tool in boat restoration !

            we re-inforced the wood pannel by adding some wood on the vertical grain as suggested by KC.
            only with the woods screwed in place it feels strong but we added 2 ply of 1708 on each side to get sure. Still under cure so load test will be next time. by load testing I mean me and my brother... about 400 pounds :-)

            We finally found the correct hoses for the fuel tank so we installed fill and vent line with dual clamp and did a gas pouring test to ensure that we have no leak at the clamps.

            other than that was small jobs here and there, foaming the fuel chase and the deck.
            putting back some foam plugs with PB.
            re-installing the fuel tank level with a new gasket, ground wiring for the tank... nothing really visual.

            The temp is now close to 0°C so getting a good temp for glassjob becomes a challenge

            more next time :-)
