at least it gave me a chance to re anti slip the floor in orange
also fit my new console me liking this lots now, only item that ever let it down,

nice to have that tank sitting so low in the hull gives it a lovelly centre of gravity and greatly gave me some much needed fuel capacity, as was running of a 40 ltr mobile tank right pain in the ass.
