SLG You would put the cell under the floor where your "lid" would be flush. The cell would be basically mounted 1" or so below the floor of the grocery area. The type of tubing does not matter but the way it would be constructed does.

CarsByCarl Not a wagon, but I made the cell cage in the link below out of square tubing. It passed tech for the kind of racing I do, but every sanctioning body is different with regulations about what sort of tubing, what sort of cell, and if it can or cannot be attached to the roll bar/cage.

The wagon dilemma is a tough one. I can't imagine a hatch that can be opened would be legal. How about a side fill on the quarter panel, or something like that?

bigblok86ranger My best advice would be to call your local NHRA tech. Some rules are very vaguely worded and it is up to them to make the call.

Fuel cell in a wagon

I 've asked this before and never got a definitive answer. I'm wondering how you guys have separated the cell from the passenger compartment. I would like to cut out the floor and spare tire well and build a frame work and a sheet metal box setting the cell below the floor level and covering it with a sealed , hinged cover that can be opened for access and fueling. Can I build the supporting structure out of square tubing or does it have to be round? I'd appreciate any input and photos of what others have done. I know what has to be done for a coupe or hatch but I haven't had much luck finding info an how to set up a wagon. Any help will make my life easier and will be greatly appreciated.
