In addition to replacing the smashed fuel tank, i also went for an Integy Savage Fuel Tank Guard, to help protect against any other similar errors in the future.
So it was a nice surprise today when the post man dropped it on my door mat.
Unfortunately it wont go together with the HPI Engine Stopper…
However with a quick snip off that corner…
… and a washer under the other end, it all fits great!
Looks pretty slick too!
As an added bonus Integy actually supply a slightly longer screw to compensate for the thickness of the material, as the guard mounts on the same points as the engine plate between the TVP’s. Good thinking Integy!
