VB fuel tank

Hi all,

I want to pull my fuel tank out and give it a quick sand back and coat of paint to neaten it up for now. Eventually I want to get a stainless drop tank but for now this will just tidy it up. Just wondering how difficult it is to pull the tank out and put It back in. I Havnt had a good look at it yet to Sus it out but has anyone on here pulled one out before and is there much to it?

Cheers
James

From memory it's not a big job. There's a few hoses and the fuel gauge wire to disconnect, and then the 2 straps that hold the tank in place. I'm probably stating the obvious, but it'll be a whole lot easier to do with an empty tank.

Thanks guys, thought it may have been fairly simple but just wanted to ask incase there was going to be any hidden surprises.
if this wind p1sses off here in Sydney I'll give it a go over the weekend and hopefully have some pics of it painted. Not going to be show quality but a million times better than what it is now until I get the cash for a drop tank anyway.

Cheers
James
