Found this old plastic Rickman Metisse tank when I was clearing out shed

Thought I'd try it for size on Snorton....... need to drop it down a bit but its a nice shape and it holds a bit more fuel than the white fiberglass one

Good call that man, bit of the new sealer wouldn't go amiss Steve

might do, thinking that a tank sealer might form a barrier layer ill try some petrol in it for a few days and see if theres any issues.
