Mk3 2.5 diesel tank straps

Postby Myblackt5 » Tue Oct 17, 2017 10:14 pm

Hello all, my '91 executive passed its mot test I'm pleased to say. However the tank straps are gone and have apparently been replaced with ratchet straps. I've searched eBay but no luck. Does anyone have or know where I can get some tank straps. Thanks

If your struggling to find tank straps, could have a bash at making them yourself? I'm sure someone on here has done it before. There fairly basic in design. Failing that I'm sure a metal butcher , fabricator, could know you up a couple with a quick measure up n chop chop .

Materials required.......2x 4 foot strips of 1mm x 30mm galvanised steel, 4 x 180mm lengths of 6mm studding and a few nuts/washers to suit......and a pair of bicycle inner tubes from pound land......chuck it all on the floor, look at it and it should become obvious what you need to do.....if back and I'll bore you with the instructions.... :wink:
