That looks like a good quality American made cell. If it was Chinese I would be a little more worried about the aluminum welds cracking in a buggy without baffles

My gas tank doesn’t have a baffle, why would a cell be any different?
Valid point :thumb:

You're worried about fuel sloshing in a rig that doesn't move. Make it move, then worry about sloshing........ My fuel cell has no baffle, so far so good.

Been plugging away at the chassis still. Just love metal fabrication so that's been the focus off my efforts. But also have been working on getting a fuel system figured out so I can keep making forward progress. Plan this weekend is to add windshield bars and maybe fully burn in some of these tubes. And I think I'm going to start to try and figure out doors.


Added some triangulation to the rear, lower frame



Bolt-in crossmember to tie the two shock locations together.

Sure am glad you are ready for fuel cell baffles. :sonicjay:
What can I say...the engineer in me is constantly looking ahead, trying to figure things out to the last detail. Its a blessing and a curse :sonicjay: And I know how my brain works...if I'm not looking ahead and figuring out the next step, then I'll drag my feet and progress will slow.
