Beautiful build camlifter.

About fiberglass tanks. Did some research and it seems that fiberglass doesn't hold up well to gasoline, at least without a lining like Creme or a similar product. Seems the fiberglass begins to break down and you end up with a plastic coating in your carb.

I'm going to head out to a plastics factory this week and check out what it takes to make a mold for blow molding plastic tanks. Can't imagine they'd be too expensive to make once a mold is made.

Wondering if anyone else has looked into blow molding or knows anything about it.
