Thiese two brackets where bolted to the armor on both sides near the pioneer tools. Are they for a halftrack.

Just finished the first tank and it was a real tig welding learning experience. Started the second one and that one is goin much easier just have to get some fittings. Goofed up and put the baffle on the wrong side of the tanks. Not going to cut them open and redo. Question about the sending unit. Where it bolts to the tank doe it just sit on top level with the tank or is it recessed in the tank a little. The senders will be towards the rear of the track instead of in front. The tank covers should hide it.

Finally finished my fuel tanks, I know the sending units are on the wrong side. Was to far into the build to switch around must have had a dyslexic moment. Will see how install turns out.
