I need some help.. I'm trying to build a third gas tank in my L2K.

  • Do you have any photos of your fuel selector valve installation you can send me? I'm pretty sure I wanta keep the valve low, but I can't visualize if I can put it on the other side of the spar and wet the hole center section.. this would also make it easier to put flapper gates in to keep fuel in the center but I'm not sure I can make the corner to put the selector in the center console..

  • Do you have any photos of how close your leg's calf is to the floor board? I'm pretty sure I can box in that spot under one's knee caps, but I don't know how high I can extend it down one's leg without getting in the way of the pedals and one's calf.
