Hi Catsam,
Is that a GTi fuel tank?

Cheers

Hi Catsam,
Do you still have that K3 petrol tank?
My youngest (Alex) has a Libra, and although I found a second hand Metro Gti petrol tank it would benefit from a carbon fibre/kevlar copy which would be lighter and stronger.

Hi,
I have a nephew close to you and I'm going to ask him to collect when he can. Is that ok?
so will need your postcode and address please. Would have arranged collection but carriers don't like used petrol tanks and I had to promise it had been empty for years on the last one.
How is the 1.8 VVc?

hi,
Like to be at your place early on Thursday morning to collect. On my way to Mulbarton and, possibly Bungay.
The trek eastward.

Are you going to be in the GTM. If so i’ll keep an eye out for you!!
Quite often pass through both whilst working.

Hi,
Unfortunately not in a GTM, in a 2001 black Honda Jazz.
Coupe still 14 years in the making!!
Libra will be sooner but it belongs to number 2 son and I need it off the drive first.
What's the house number?

Do you realise the mtg flange has been cut off the front edge as this is not used when fitted to k3 but is used to fit to libra

Thanks Mark, but as I intend to make a new one in carbon, using vacuum infusion, http://www.easycomposites.co.uk/#!/comp ... n-infusion I can make the flange bigger if I need to.
I need the body of the tank, re-create positions for pump and sender as well as reproducing the filler pipe, breather etc.
But thanks for the heads up. I have a ordinary Metro tank for comparison purposes
Cheers,
TG
