R8 Fuel Tank

#1 Post by Pencil Tip » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:13 pm

Are the fuel tanks on the petrol models the same across the range? I'm after a tank for my Coupe and wondered if any R8 tank will fit or specifically a Coupe one.

A furtle around here might help - http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/ItemList--R ... ms--m-1861

Unfortunately they're not all the same between engine types but they are across body types.
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams
