Making a run of esprit tanks

Recommended Posts

Hi

A friend and I made some tanks for my Esprit, then for a friend, then his friend, so decided ....I'm making a run of Esprit tanks,  while I have all the patterns made and jigs to hand.  I am geared up to make s1(early and late) and s2 tanks but could make any tanks if I had an original.

 

The cost for a pair (Both sides) is £400 (less than half the price I see them normally sell for) They would take a few days to make

 

They are pressure tested motorsport quality look beautiful, happy to post them out.

 

Please message me if you would like a pair

Matt

Bugger. Changed mine a few years back!! Otherwise you'd have a customer...if you could do tanks for an 82 turbo..... Nice piece of work, they are.

Tanks look the business Matt.

I would be interested if you can do them for a 1985 Turbo.

I have yet to check my tanks fully but judging by everything else on the car they will need work.

What material are theses made from please?

I'd be interested in a pair for an S4 if you are able to do them?

Construction looks superb!

1992 SE (data plate says built in NOV 92 - USA Federal) could certainly use a pair as mine were stolen. I can not supply models though as car is in use whenever possible but are rusting internally quite badly I have been told. If possible, what would shipping to Maryland, US be approximately, please? And they look astounding!
