Bespoke or modify the existing one. I'm fitting a simple rectangular alloy foam filled tank.

Both of ours use a 4.5 gallon ally tank. I got mine from burton power I think - foam filled too. Not sure where the other came from as Craig sourced it.

They will cause issues with the boot liner though as I don't run one. Probably pictures on my build thread in the earlied pages -if you can't find them let us know and I'll post some up, of both cars.

Stu B had a short one made for his sabre and there are drawings about somewhere iirc,

Steve doesn't have a choice on boot liner (without hacking it out) so he'll need to get the right size tank.

There's quite a few on eBay eg. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ALLOY-FUEL-TA ... 0517025639. I may get lucky and find one that fits.

I've seen the one Stew B has, nice neat fit and same capacity as the original. It may be worth getting a few quotes to build one before I get a stock motorsport one. Plenty of time yet though.

Doesn't look like I need one now. The car I'm buying from Chris already has the necessary kit :wink:

I have a standard rollbar going to Billing and another to Holland (via the International in Scotland :-)) - leaving 2 in stock. Please let me know if you are thinking of arranging collection at Curbs, so that I can re-order early.

Please note that I am not currently taking orders that require postage as the PO are insisting that they are boxed. If I can find a reasonable source of boxes, I will let everyone know the new postage price.

I would be interested in picking one up at Curbs Jim.

May be I could collect before then or if someone was coming past the West Midlands???
