Regardless of how simple something seems, the Devil always runs through the instructions to make sure he has all the parts and understands how a product works, how it's installed, and what its intended application is. "The Devil" of Lucky Devil Metal Works had used Matt Hotch Designs' gas caps and kickstands for quite some time when he heard about Matt's new Flush Fuel Crossover kit. The kit hides the fuel crossover line under the gas tank and out of sight with the help of two weld-in tank inserts and a metal plate to conceal the hose. It's a pretty straightforward operation but requires cutting and welding experience. Since the Devil was already busy on a customer's gas tank, he decided to install Hotch's Flush Mount Gas Cap with the weld-in steel bung during the same session.

After all the welding was done, the tank was pressure-tested to ensure a leak-proof container. A pressure regulator makes this job easier and safer-you want a max of 10 psi. Too much pressure can distort the shape of the tank.
