It's so cold and cruddy here now. Progress is slow. Have the front horizontal armor bolted up now. I've noticed in some photos a large ish hole that would be under the fuel tank (I'm guessing for a drain or plumbing) Would anyone have any measurements for that hole location and size? Am I missing anything else?

Here are the measurements I got off my track armor.mine is an m16 but it’s all the same. From the bulkhead to center of the hole 22 and 5/8, from the seat side of the track armor edge to the center of the hole it’s 9 and 1/2 . Hole diameter 1 and 3/4. Hope that helps

Man, I spent last weekend in St Louis, wish it would have snowed while I was there. Took my kids to the city museum, and lunch at fitz .

Beerman, if you live close enough come back to St. Louis at the end of April.  We have a big WWII event where we have our halftracks and other vehicles at.  Darthkitten may even have his there (nudge nudge).

Thanks for the invite. St Louis is about a 8 hour drive for me, which is not that bad. Let me know what dates and I will see what I can do.
