morning chaps, i trust we are all hiding up as much as possible smile
it's car fettling time, and I need a petrol tank making up. Is there anyone local who can make me up an ally petrol tank? it's going to be a slightly custom design regards dimensions, and it needs specific mounting points and also to reuse the existing fuel pump and fuel level sensor.

hence why i am not buying an ebay special off the shelf.

any suggestions for a local ally tig welder who will be able to help me out?

You need these people : proalloy.co.uk

Based in Haverhill, Suffolk and been there a good number of years. They made a superb job of building an alloy fuel tank for my lads racing motorcycle. It was a bespoke tank from scratch to fit into a section lower in the bike chassis.

This guy gets Aly fuel tanks made to fit Esprits which are a tight fit (2 of them). I have them in my car and they're pretty special, he may be able to take your design on.

Thanks everyone, I popped down to see Martin at AluTech today (maintaining social distancing) and spent a good hour or so talking about engineering, welding, and custom fuel tanks smile
