Re: Fuel tanks - Latest batch now available.

I did mine by using exhaust gas from a diesel car to purge out all the petrol fumes and then did sone welding on it, i am sure tickover can do something for you to purge the tank so it is safe to tran...

2 dash tops for sale

I have 2 Mk3 dashboard tops for sale, both are cracked but frames are good for anyone wishing to buy the CC replacement for which you need a frame to fit it to. Better to have a spare frame so you can do the fitment of the CC dash top and then put the whole assembly into your car rather than taking ...
