    Re: Help with home brew kit

    When cylinders are installed in vehicles they are mounted with 3/4" grade 8 bolts and an additional backing plate on the opposite side of the structure. I am not familiar whit how you would get to both sides of the stringers. I have however worked on both Lotuses and
    Ginettas. (both Fiberglass) and the structural upgrade would be quite easy. As a mater of fact I have a 71 Europa project in garage that I am thinking of trying to convert to GNG.

    You will also need a fueling receptacle. your reg. needs to be hot water jacketed. Anchor all tubing every 24". I am curious how you re going to mount your tanks?
    Curious as well on the mounting of the tanks. If they are not composite they will need serious structure. I would hate to see you jump a wake and have your tanks fall out LOL just kidding. Anyway interesting project. Hope to see your progress here

    Another issue I see is no manual shutoff on the high pressure side.

    It might be a good idea to keep the cng tanks as close together as possible and place your hp regulator/cutoff valve close to them- run only low pressure lines to the engine compartment.
