 Hi thanks for the info on rear end width but these two pages are so far
apart on there measurements that I'm more confused now than I was before.

Subject: Panel Gas Tank/Exhaust

I have a 54 panel, and, although this is a different body style than the
F1, I believe the stock panel tank location for both is inside of the
frame, next to the drive shaft.

Repeat question, never answered, take 3:
"Knowing how cheap the car manufacturers are, does anyone know why they
located the panel gas tanks inside, instead of outside, the frame?"

Anyway, getting back to the panel tank location, here is what I did, on
2 different panels, to circumvent the problem with dual exhausts:

I routed  both pipes, side by side after the crossover pipe, along
approximately the line where the right pipe is supposed to be, and had
the dual Flowmasters installed 90 degrees turned, side by side.  I
brought the dual exhausts out on the right rear...looks cool, like a
double barreled shotgun!  Also, I had room for 2 resonators at the rear
just before the tips, to mellow out the sound a bunch.

I could have, of course, seperated the exhausts to come out both sides
at the rear, but thought of no particular reason to do so, especially
after seeing the "double barrel" look.

I also "yawed" the gas tank front end about 2 inches to the outside, to
give a little better clearance at the Ujoint (non stock drivetrain).

Has anyone ever used ECI,, disc brake kits?  I'm thinking of using the 5 x 5 1/2 bracket kit that uses Ford truck rotors and GM calipers.
