Hey gang!

I need to have a fuel cell made up for the gokart. I can provide full dimensions/CAD drawings etc. Just don't have the gear for welding Aluminium :(

Anybody handy with welding Al or know someone who could bang something together?

Cheers!

1. The steering setup up front is becoming quite different to a regular kart. aka regular kart tanks don't fit.

2. A kart fuel tank has an irregular shaped bottom and thus won't accept a big hole for the pump

3. I need to have nuts welded inside the tank for the pump to bolt to. I'm using the stock pump from a GSX-R.

Need I go on? (I can't, that's all my reasons :P )
