Question FoxBody Fuel Cell - Looking for pics / ideas

Getting ready to redo my fuel system starting with tossing the factory tank and installing a fuel cell. Post your pictures of your fuel cell setups. Did you cut out the spare tire and lay down sheet metal?

Check out Behind Bars Race cars for a factory location tank, much better than the fuel cell route IMO

I have a 10 gallon cell in my coupe mounted down in the spare tire well.

here is what I did...but I just now swapped to a 5 gallon so I have room for a CO2 system.

Fuel system

I have that old tank and straps out of the car, if you want it cheap. It has a Mustang compatible fuel level sensor.

i don't the pictures any more but I did 10 gallon cell in the trunk. I did a 1/4 aluminum plate. I did cut out the spare tire spot. I had to do a rear bulk head to meet the tracks safety

Thanks for the quick responses, I have a 10g fuel cell I'm going to put in. If anyone has pictures of the spare tire cut out that would be awesome. This car is mainly a track car but I do typically take it out to local car shows ect looking for the cleanest look I can get.

Very nice! I have the Scott Rod rear seat delete which looks similar.

We used the spare tire well and made a horizontal firewall.

That's a pretty cool design.

Believe I'm going to start on mine today. Pulled the factory tank out last night. My idea is too put the fuel cell into the spare tire well then butt sheet metal up too the cell around the spare tire well. Once that's complete I plan on carpeting the entire trunk around the fuel cell and around the battery box. That's the plan anyways lol.

I kept my stock tank for street use, 91 octane, and added a 5 gal cell, 110 octane, for the track. I use two 3way valves to line up the tank I want to pull from and line up the appropriate return tank, it's a pretty simple system and works very well.

I love my BBRC tank. They use factory sender too. They even put a mount on it for my A1000.
Quality piece, and no need for a firewall.
