Have I got a tank guard?


Recommended Posts

Hi again all, another silly question.

My fuel tank has a 2mm plate which covers the whole bottom surface and is held via the tank fixing bolts.

It has a LR sticker on the underside. Is it a guard or just the fixing method please?

Told you it was a silly question.

Bob :D

Well it's 2mm more than I have... Mine is a '90 RRC with a steel tank and nothing other than the tow-ball supports to protect it. I guess yours must be some kind of a guard although equally I would guess that at 2mm it might stop the tank being punctured, but certainly would not stop it getting dented.

When you see a Range Rover go off some kind of a step and drop onto that overhang it don't arf make you wince! I will be looking to add some rather more substantial guarding once I get mine back on the road, something like this

When I put a new steel tank on my 1989 RRC I was asked if I wanted a new tank cradle with it which I did as mine was erm rotting away! The cradle is 2mm thick & fixes on useing the tank fixings so I assume this is what you are refering to :)
