fisha Posted November 11, 2005 Share Posted November 11, 2005 In short i ideally would like to get a custom small petrol tank for the RRC. I want a tank that hangs between the 2 chassis rails of the RR, has roughly the same overall depth as the normal RR tank, but is only about 8 to 10" long from front to rear . This is just really to be a back up tank should I run out of LPG. Having it that small will serve 2 purposes of keeping the rear chassis free from too much mud ( a particular problem of the RRC ) and also would give me a good 12"+ of space at the rear between the chassis rails. This in the future could possibly be utilised for a rear winch or something like that. Now, what would be the best material to make a petrol tank from? mild steel, stainless steel or even Alu? I have a gas / gasless MIG welder which to date has served me well - but i'm not sure of whether I would be able to: a) make non pourous welds B) even be able to weld SS with it? So any recommendations on whether to attempt it myself or not. Or, does anyone have any recommendations on getting it done by someone else where it wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. many thanks, Donald Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
