Travis,

What about cleaning them and treating them like the gas tanks?

Its possible, but the rust is pretty extensive, and the tanks are difficult to clean. I was quoted $400 for stainless steel fabbed tanks.

I can make my own out of two aluminum tanks for $200 maybe. Thinking Weapon R tanks...

Travis,

Did Kirt give you a quote?

There's a quick mention of this coming from a Peugeot 205 on the parts Cross Reference Thread currently. Have a look there?

Must admit I struggle to understand where the costs are for some of these parts - considering if you had welding capabilities you could butcher 2 units together to make 1 for very little.

Other than that, anyone tried using the combined plastic (ie see through) tank used on the later cars ?

I dont see any reason why it can't be used, there only seems to be 1 difference in the CC circuit where there is a T piece on the 2 tank system for the CC reservoir - other than that it looks like a direct port ?

Change the T piece for a back to back connector, job done ?

Reading through the manual there's nothing else changed...
