This project was to build and end-dump trailer. The two halves in these two pictures was and old gas tank from a filling station. The guy who sold the tank to B.L. "Porky" Clifton steam cleaned the tank then cut it in half, leaving the ends on each piece.


The "Bed" was really flimsy, and had to be braced with transverse cross members. The two longitudinal edges were strengthened with 3 inch x 8 inch steel tube. The tube was slit all the way down on one side and forced down on the edge, then welded solid. The guy who sold the tank to B.L.
