Savage X, now with armour plating

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!
