fuel tank gaurd

Post  DICKY on Sun May 10, 2009 3:30 pm

i am going to have to drop the fuel tank on mine as the bash plate is rotten and the tank is fixed on to it. looks like i will have to replace the tank straps as well because they are no longer there they have rotted away.
i was going to replace the fuel pipes as well as they dont look as if they will last much longer.
i am going to use griflex tubing only because i have rolls of the stuff.
i will get the rear chassis scraped then under sealed at the same time.

You might as well do it now when you have to take so much of any way nothing worse the sorting one problem putting it together then having to take it all apart again to fit something else lol!
