Question Which thread for tank fitting

I have just unpacked the new 81 litre aux diesel tank for the NP. I thought I would put up some posts as I fit it, if anyone is interested. Maybe a few photos if I can work out how to do that.
But which thread to use, general info, mechanical or diy. or any suggestions.

Question That's a very good question.

I can see why your wondering where best to post. There's a few places that see to fit.

'Bolted on bits & pieces and aftermarket' would be my best guess. I reckon there would be a few of us here interested in seeing the stages & the end result.

I'm assuming the extra tank is for touring reasons. So I'd be keen to look & learn with a view to a another tank down the track, as it were, to give me more range when touring.

Hi Brian.
Have a look at my how to guide before you start. Whilst its a different tank, the principles are the same and it may just help you from making the same mistakes I made.

BTW this was posted in "bolted on bits"

Regards,

Shane.

Gday, Bill and Shane, thanks for your replies. It looks like bolted on bits wins. That was a great post, Shane. I would not have bothered if I had seen that first.
My tank is bit different, bigger and different supplier, so it might still have some interest.
Bill. My reason for fitting it is, I tow a caravan and that can drop your range from 800ks to 500 ks, if you hit a strong head wind even lower. I have got to some small towns, intending to fill up. Only to find they are out of diesel, or shut, or no power.
Last year I filled up in Mt Isa and drove to Julia Creek. Left the next morning with just under half a tank to drive to Richmond 149k.
But overnight a strong headwind had come up. Boy that needle dropped fast, got to Richmond with the red light on and about 10 litres left.
There will be a delay before I start, severed the tenden in my right thumb just before xmas, get the plaster off on Jan 11, then its all go, I am retired so it can be a full time project.
