Arrow Drop tanks?/spoilers?

Dont know what they are called but i think they might be called droptanks

U know those alluminium tanks under cars, seen a guy with one under his slr5000 and thought "i need one!"

How much or how hard to knock a fake one?

Also i am looking for a small bootlip spoiler for my xd, one like on a ea-d that goes out from the back of the boot rather than from the top of it, like on a vl commo, or should i knock up one of those alloy drag spoilers that extend out from the boot, but a smallish one, which one in your opion would look better combined with the droptank to complete the look of the back of my xd?

Thanks

Re: Drop tanks?/spoilers?

Far as I know nobody makes a twin light kit.....BUT......

Try the headlight assembly from a ZJ Fairlane, as these had the 4 rouind lights. not sure if it's the exact look you want....

As for the drop tank, they are expensive to buy. Possible to knock up a 'shroud' out of alloy to hide your factory tank, but u need access to a sheet metal bender for a good result! Also as the tank is to one side of the car, the shroud will be too, to give clearance for the exhaust. May look a bit odd....

Re: Drop tanks?/spoilers?

I got quoted $600 i think it was years ago for a drop tank for an EDXR8.
150 litres double seamed & baffled
Damn I wish I had it fitted now :(
