I decided to have a fuel cell installed in my thunderbird to solve fuel starvation issues. I was not a big fan of having to cut out the spare tire well and install a custom made 16 gauge steel box. I am going make a bracket so that I can mount my spare tire forward and down at a angel. Here is some pictures of the install it is a 16 gallon tank. I did mount a heavy duty 40 ohm resistor in the fuel level lead to get the dash gauge to read correctly.

Looks good. How many gallons did you go with?

Good start to your install, what fuel pump are you going with? I went with an Aeromotive A1000.

It is a 16 gallon fuel cell. I am running a single detch works 350 lph pump. I might add a second pump later under the max usage I am only using 305 lph.
