Beetle fuel tank needed

Morning guys and gals

The fuel tank on my bug is finished with life. Does anyone have a good one in the Durban area for me?

Regards
Johan


Cheers
Johan

As most Beetle tanks are 50 years old PLUS, do you think you will find a perfect sample. ??

Yes I have two in my spares Room, but not one is perfect, you will always need to de-rust it, and when you do you land up with holes,

You are welcome to buy One of my tanks, but no guarantee, what you see is what your get, can tell you it does not leak now.

Good luck with your search, or maybe import a new repo tank, thats the easiest.
