RRC long range tank
« on: July 16, 2016, 04:35:57 PM »
I've been after one of these for a long time, but all the originals were a long time out of production and they've never been popular for a Range Rover, after all.


One of my friends has one in his RRC and I finally managed to get his car away from him long enough a couple of weeks ago and grab his extra tank to copy. We now have a blueprint and I have a newly fabricated extra rear wing tank extension. This will give the Range Rover the same long range capacity of 115 litres as my Defender.


Here's a couple of pictures of the new tank extension, which will be fitted during next week, whilst the Defender becomes my daily drive for a bit.


You can see the angled pipe, which goes to the filler cap and the straight pipe, which goes into the main tank instead of the original pipe from the filler cap. :tip



Regards,
Brian
