Fuel Tank: Most of the aluminum on this buggy is 1/8-inch 5052 that I got in 5x12-foot sheets from Industrial Metal Supply. We'll use roughly three sheets for the floorboard, firewall, body panels, and fuel tank. The fuel tank incorporates internal baffles to hinder sloshing fuel and a sump to keep fuel near the pick-up during inclines and low fuel levels.
