Re: Anyone mounted Gerry Cans on their rig?
I would bet you could find one at a salvage yard for pretty cheap. I'm not sure what years, it could be all, but some had the filler neck in the upper corner of the tank. If your talking about the bodywork for the fuel neck, you can run a shorty right off the corner, and fill it via the rear wheel well. It's sort of hard to explain, but as you know, the tank end can bee seen through the wheel well. My old 77 had an added on extra tank, and the person who owned it I guess didn't want to cut the body. He mounted a short fill neck like I mentioned, and put a cap on it. To fill it you just reached into the rear wheel well, and removed the cap & filled. I don't know what sort of time frame you are up against, but if there is time, I would check into it. It would really suck to come out of a highway rest stop, and find that some a-hole cut the locks & stole your 2 full cans, while out in the middle of nowhere, sitting at an 1/8 of a tank.
Best of luck to ya.
