    Okay you guys - post up the action from the SkunkWerks!

    What's everybody doing to get ready for GSMTR?

    Me? I've got:

    - 12V on-board air with a 4gal tank
    - Florescent domelight/worklight with extension cord ala Capt. Jim
    - Rocklights almost finished (fronts in, rears tonight maybe)
    - Hand throttle done and works great
    - 12V cordless drill wired with battery clamps for trail use

    Will be buying some steel next week for sliders and a skid plate (maybe a wrap-bar too).

    I'm just counting the days...

    Did add a Toy Box, got some spare parts, challenged the WPB guys to meet on Lower 2, and will try out the Toy Box in Texas next month...

    Got a "new" used CCOT repro gas tank yesterday. Time to sell the poly tank.

    Anybody want a poly tank?

    What's wrong with the Poly? Does it leak vapours?

    Not really - the plastic means you can't over-tighten any bolts around the sending unit and the brass fittings on it needed some assistance in sealing.

    I think I had to replace one of the screws around the sending unit with a larger one already.

    It's so slick that even RTV doesn't work well.

    All-in-all it was a more economical replacement for an old leaking stock tank that I had several years ago.

    Bill - check your PM's...
