    Hello all, glad to have the site back!
    To satisfy my desire to do something I have been toying with the idea of putting a metal backing behind the panel that separates the cabin from the fuel tank/boot. After seeing the photos of the accident in Atlanta last Friday(?) and being a first hand witness to how people have forgotten how to drive properly I’ve been thinking about safety enhancements.
    Has anyone done this/seen this? Is it a waste of time? I do have one of the Boyd aluminum fuel tanks installed FWIW.
    Thanks

    Its required for racing, Revington TR even sells a kit for that. It would be easy enough to fab one from aluminum and install it behind the stock piece I would think.
    Here is a link to the Revington part https://www.revingtontr.com/product/...re-wall-tr4a-6

      I’ve thought of it since there’s nothing between me and 13 gallons of gas other than particle board and 3’ of air for it to light. My idea was to use a sheet of metal, either steel or aluminum and cut it using the particle board of the rear card as a template. Then put it between the tank and the card and screw through both to the mounts. Of course you could also make a neoprene (or other closed cell foam that will not dissolve with gas) envelope to enclose it and absorb some of the shock and maybe retain the liquid.

        Thanks guys. I didn’t realize Revington had a kit...
        Lou, i was thinking exactly what you were as far as construction but the neoprene hadn’t occurred to me. Good thinking
