A4 Tank dilemma

#1 PostAuthor: Wrigers » Sun Nov 19, 2017 12:38 pm

After spending several hours lately cleaning the inside of the tank and generally prepping for a future paint job, ive just noticed several small pin holes were the metal has obviously given up, just above the petrol tap.
My question is,is it a good idea to source a repair, bearing in mind the cost etc, or look for a decent replacement . Never had this before, ive always been lucky with tanks. Paul.
