Hi everyone, hope you can help me. Im in the middle of getting some work done on the back end of my sporty to get it through an M.O.T but before i can do any welding the fuel tank has to come out. I first need to know how difficult it is to remove and re fit as i have already snapped 2 bolts just removing the plastic wheel arch cover! Has anyone done this job? What problems did you have to overcome and how did you solve them.
Secondly, my fuel lines are very corroded. I had an advisory for them on the failed M.O.T (it failed because of rust on the rear arch) but i dont think their going to last if i start moving them about. Can I replace them with rubber or plastic lines or would it have to be metal, like the original?
Any advice would be great as I have a love hate relationship when it comes to working on the sporty at the moment, not helped by having to work on it outdoors and having limited tools. I'm determined though to getting her back on the road so come on you sporty fans....get typing!!!
