Aluminum Fuel Tank Modification

Perry SR was putting a gas tank in a customers truck and wanted the filler to be exactly in a certain spot because of the wooden bed floor and billet filler door. It was not close enough for the hose to connect to it, so he had me move it over. (tank had never been filled with gas prior to welding)
