LPG tank in boot.

As some of you will no doubt realise, you can never have enough speakers in a car... but you can run out of spots to put them. I've seen a speaker setup in a Fairlane of similar vintage to my car that used the space behind the rear seats to house a pair of subs. I'd love to try this, but there is a problem with that... in the form of a massive LPG keg in that spot. Does anyone know if it's legal to move the keg into the boot area more (by use of spacers, brackets or both) so that Stage Three of my sound system can be finished??

Re: LPG tank in boot.

I would not want to move the tank, its dangerous to say the least and reason its mounted there is to bolt it firmly to the wheel arches.

I used to have 2x10" kicker's in a box behind the gas tank in my old XE... just put handles on the box and put a quick connect plug on the wires to it can be easily removed should the space be needed.

The tank didn't really interfere with the sound.... i had a number of people that had to get out of the car because it was too loud!!!

Just like a Tsunami.

Re: LPG tank in boot.

It would still use the original mounting holes, but the rear brackets on the tank would be held in using a longer bolt and a spacer. and the front mounting holes would be bolted to a plate that is fixed to the original front mounting holes. If there is still legality involved, I might even go as far as replacing the tank with a different designed mounting system (or smaller capacity).

Re: LPG tank in boot.

leave it where it is

it will need to get done by a gas place, they will laugh at ya but.....

put the subs in the boot, and be done with it...

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!

XE Fairmont Ghia... Silver/Grey Met over black, soon to be v8, cant wait till i get another v8, after 3 LONG HARD YEARS
