Hi All,

Hi All,
Have a wee update nothing special as suspension or engine mods just a gas tank so i can get them brews on and poss some super noodles T:after much thought and saving i decided to go for this 200 x 20 Ltr Gas It Horizontal Vapour tank (200mm x 717mm in size ) :) they do larger tanks but due to clearance issues i thought id stay small , was for fitting as large as possable in ltr but wasnt happy with clearance issues so played it safe with this one .it also leaves room for a waste tank .

not too many spots under a t4 to mount it :confused: so settled for pass side



could have done with a ramp but managed I: tie rap was to hold as i fixed on the tanks straps



Filler point left of pic ,filler hose goes behind tank and connects to tank right of pic .
Might move this to back of van with longer hose .



Put gas pipe in flexi conduit for some protection

all i need to do now is drop it on the bump stops :eek: only kidding

Eibachs next still undecided on shocks but the gaz shocks keep shouting at me;)

Hello mate, liking your headlining, did you put a fleece blanket under the duvet cover? Did you use spray glue to fix? Only asking as i used a duvet cover too, glued it straight onto the hardboard headlining and am not too happy with the result- got some ripples and went a bit see through
