View Full Version : Gas Tank Swap?

01-28-2004, 07:48 PM
Im gutting the underneath of my 89 5spd-- 3.55 gears, aluminum driveshaft(MkVIII), new syncros, ripper shifter, fuel pump, tranny/engine mounts, polyurethane bushings for differential and suspension, brakes, exhaust. My question is, will the gas tank straps for my old style tank hold up the new style tank for the "good" exhaust system(aftermarket of course)? the straps I got w/ the new tank are rustier than hell, and I'd hate to see rust on my southern 'Bird. If not, does anyone know where to get replacement new style straps at a decent buck?
