I don’t suppose there are any pickup tubes one can just buy for an old 37 Hudson gas tank?

    Before you but that t-bird tank, do a search on here for 36 Terraplane gas tank, authored by bent metal, and see what you are getting into. It is in the “how to” section, on the second page.

    I went ahead and cleaned up the two pieces then soldered them back together, good as new.  Moving on to make gaskets...

    36 Terraplane gas tank done by bent metal was done for me I asked him to bolt it to the frame because I did not want it bolted to the body like Dave did to his 39 it was well worth it to me these t-birds tanks are great.

    The fabrication work involved in what he did (and all of his work) is meticulous, and second to none. I only suggested looking at that thread, so they would understand that it may not be a bolt in replacement. Please Correct me if I’m wrong.
