Stainless Gas tank straps for 240Z

Recommended Posts

I am waiting on feedback regarding fit on a 07/76 to end of 78 Zs. I have yet to obtain the middle series for testing. If someone can measure them for me (and provide a pic) I can have them made no problem.

 

Jerry,

 

Let me know if these help,

 

 

Thanks in advance,

John

They were not completed as promised but I saw the components yesterday and they should be assembled (welded) today.

 

Will update the thread later today.

 

Appreciate the push John!

Got the mid series 280Z straps...in my hand. They look great and I apologize for the delays. It was a priority thing ...and ...I needed to make up longer strap blanks.

 

Bottomline...as soon as I obtain a test volunteer to confirm fitement they will be available for sale.

 

John...are you interested? If so PM me to review......

 

Thanx

 

Jerry

Tank strap update:

Well who among us does not love getting packages related to our restore projects?

Yesterday the postmaster left me the most impressive package yet, you guessed it...

My Stainless Tanks straps... All I can say is WOW excellent craftsmanship, and solid welds will insure the tank stays where it is supposed to be!!!

Please bear with me as I plan to soak the tank in caustic soda this week and the repaint it before I return it to the underside but I had to post some early pictures...

Jerry I will test fit before hand so you know about the sizes and can continue production.

Again I’m very impressed with the straps!!! But after looking at Jerrys car I guess I should not be shocked!

No worries, get better!

 

Jerry,

 

I have the spindle pin puller built and will also be doing the tank work this weekend.

 

Do you want me to simply mail a completed puller to you?

 

I will be posting pictures of straps as I go.

That looks great. Has anyone installed the ones for the 75 gas tank yet?

Wife wants to know what I want for Xmas. I told her Jerry's gas tank straps.

 

 

I will be installing ours by the end of the weekend and will have pictures up.

Jerry,

The straps fit fine; I had to however do some slight adjustments on the fixed end.

I suggest it is better for the end user to have the ability to trim them than not.

We sandblasted and sanded the old paint off, re-primed and did one coat of a black but due to the rain we have had I plan to recoat the tank several more times.

As you can see the driver side strap was tight, the car has been rear ended before not major but just enough to cause a little headache.

I highly recommend Jerry's Straps, the design, material, and construction details are incredible.

John
