Post by singledad on Sat Jun 29, 2013 12:36 pm

had to remove leaky petrol tank from betty looked like an hrs job, got everything needed under her 6hrs later the tank was out, two bolts sheared pipe clips wouldnt come off so ended up cutting them.
once out it was seeping petrol through bottom after a day of rubbing down ive now got a tea bag not a tank!!
thanks to woody this should be sorted soon so betty can once again be mobile
thanks to everyone on here for the help

Fair play to you mate, at least you are willing to get underneath and give it a go.

Yep, someone who takes on a task and doesn't give up. What more can you do in life?

It's amazing how a straight forward job can take a right U turn into pain in the arse ville.

When does your new tank turn up?
