Tank Time

Any steel water vessel eventually succumbs to time and corrosion, and alas the time has come to replace the water tank on L516. The group went about removing the old water tank using a few choice tools:

Time was taken to photograph key components to make the reassembly a little easier.

While a new tank was sourced, the tank straps were stripped and repainted.

Before Ross and Todd spent a day test fitting the tank (with the help of our trusty bottle jack).
