If it had been done 2 inches further back it could be fixed easily and sold as a second.. But its just where I cannot get too... So its OK having a show tank as it can be hidden with a decal or some paint... But its trusting the repair would be fuel safe simply because you cannot get to the inside to be sure you have covered the whole area.. I will see when I go to collect it soon..  I just saw the photos and spoke to the painter...


He will do the right thing to help sort it out... He did me a few favours in the past when I had an issue with another tank that had been lacquered by someone else and it was bad.. He sort it out for me and did a good job and didn't take the piss... He will come good... A really nice guy.

it’d good you have someone like that 

As for the show tank instead of paint how about chopping it in half to show the way it’s made ???

The surface layer of Timson's replacement tank is all done on the shell and the base.. Tomorrow it is the backing layers I need to work on and hope to get it ready if not in the oven tomorrow...





I am trying to get an RS250 tank done alongside so it may not quite be ready for the oven tomorrow but it will be close..

Nickyboy.. If I can get enough interested I would love to make them.... Its all about numbers... Nothing more... I just need to cover the cost of the mould and the material costs of the first run.. I can cope not making any profit on the first ones... It really is just covering costs...

Sealed and ready to be bonded...
