Alloy Tank

Postby conquistador » Sat May 21, 2022 2:45 pm

Any recommendations for the above? Hsving sealed my tank, primed it with epoxy primer and it has still blistered, I've given up with it. If anyone has a nice yellow blister free M2 manta tank lying around I'd gladly take it.

Found them, £1200 now 👍
There is a Phoenix Traders in Smethwick who sell them for £655. I have asked them if they are made by them as I suspect the could be the same imported ones on fleabay.

The Holtworks one have seperate bolt on fixings for the front and back. The ones for sale from the link are asking to fracture in my opinion. They are made in India.
