Gas Tank


Thanks to a dodgy body mount Im doing a little over winter work to the C3.

Ive taken the gas tank out for a number of reasons and was wanting to ask peoples opinion on whether I need to refit the shroud that was fitter over it.

Personally I cant see any significant reason for the shroud. I guess it may keep road noise down slightly and provide a little protection in a rear end shunt (though that wold surely be very limited) so I cant see any major need for it.

If I could figure out how to attach pictures I would. I miss Photobucket but not enough to pay them $400/year for 3rd party hosting!

Now I can put a name to you! Cheers Steve. Probably will do the UV's. All I wanted to do this winter was paint the bloody thing. Now its just a pile of bits.

I will put it on here as well now I know how to post pictures. Though I must admit I could spend more time putting progress reports for this and my C10 on all the various forms of social media than I will building them,.

That's me! I know how that feels, you plan one thing and end up with a whole lot more, ..a body off is a whole different level though!

One of these days I might actually make it to a meet..

Must try harder!!
