I'd be wary of doing that, any more than a couple of PSI and you'll blow the tank.

Cut hole in the tank no breaks in the welds

Clean last few cups fuel out with rags
Could not see any holes !
So filled bucket with Tfr and no leak !
Chatted to biff and came back water on deck
So I was right but you not believe the holes are under 4 mm at the bottom

Yo Adrian, please can you pass on opti wiring diagram to me as I assume it will be the same or similar to 115hp wiring?

Cheers

That's looking fantastic, is there a hatch to go on the front of the console in between the seats?
