Sirpents 260Z / C32 AMG Powered RS30 - Australia


Recommended Posts

Been a few weeks, unfortunately illness and waiting for John Lange to finish the custom rear control arms have slowed me down

 

So moved onto the rear fuel tank fabrication, using the LPG donut tank as the basis

 

First was chopping 65mm out of the height through the centre aa well as removing the center tube section

Then it was a matter of fabricating a centre rise section to clear the spare wheel well hump

 

With the modifications, I’ve worked out it should be between 58-60 litres plus another 8-10 in the additional surge tank

All in all so far a perfect fit

 

See you all next week

Well it’s been a long time between drinks, but yes I am still around and the project isn’t dead, was just put on hold while I embedded myself into my new job which meant a load of travel and littl

When necessity is the mother of invention

Core of the tank is now complete and can now to move onto all the ancillary pipes and fittings

 

I’m having an alloy surge tank fabricated to sit inside one of the storage bins then route fuel and vapor lines between the 2 within an enclosed alloy conduit


An alloy bolt down lid will be made for the main tank where I’ve provisioned the access hatch and on which the pump filter etc will hang off for the main tank

 

I still have to weld in a filler neck and breather to the main tank to the vapor tank also

 

Then finally a round alloy plate will go over the top of the tank to seal it off from the interior and meet certification requirements

Love the use of a hub and old brake rotor. Very keen to see the finished tank, looks very unique and functional; also sounds like a great use of the storage bin space!

 

Thanks Buddy

We are all a bit insane to have started these projects so no holds on how we accomplish the result I say ;)
