  • Foam?

    I know you guys have dug out a good amount of foam,does this look like the original foam from an 85 fuel tank coffin box or possibly my tank has been replaced at some time in the past 36 years..

    No way...no how...that is factory installed foam.

    Somebody else did work in there. How does the tank look?

          There should be a tank certification label on the tank indicating when it was built. Agree that is not factory foam

            There is a tag,have to see if there’s a date on it,well it’s at least 10 years old but that’s way better than 36..
