    Who wants a shingleback tank for a 90 or perentie?

    G'day all,
    Thought I may as well see what interest there is for a sill tank for a 90 or a perentie. If you're not familiar with what I'm making please have a look at the other threads. But in a nutshell I've just finished developing a driver's side sill tank for a 130 made from tough rota moulded polyethylene plastic.

    The plan is to make both LH and RH sill tanks for the whole defender range in either diesel or water, but as it costs several thousand dollars to make a mould I'm asking for a real show of hands who would actually want to buy one. if I can get at least 20 people willing to pay a $150 deposit I will build the mould. There is lots of interest from the 110 owners but not many have committed, so if there happens to be more 90 or perentie owners willing I'll make them first!

    I do appreciate that it's a big ask to pay a deposit for something that hasn't been made yet, but it's the quickest way I can think of to get them happening. I do have the 130 tank finished, there are a heap of photos and video of it and anyone is welcome to come check it out if interested.

    For the perentie there are a few options.
    Main tank replacement for a 110 sill tank. about 75 litres and you get to have an under drivers seat tool box. If this is you just vote in the 110 poll.

    Or a modified 110 sill tank that goes up under the drivers seat, about 90 litres. I'll call this perentie tank replacement.

    For LH sill would be easier to re-rout the exhaust and use 110 LH sill tank.

    Relocate the spare wheel, and have a "perentie spare wheel tank"

    You could also leave the exhaust where it is and put a tank between the LH chassis rail and tail shaft under the centre of the vehicle. "perentie centre tank"

    For a 90, simply LH or RH sill tank. Remember they can all be either diesel or water.

    So please only vote in the poll if you are willing to put down a deposit.

    Price for all tanks will be no more than $800.

    I know they are a great product so please get behind me and together we can make some tanks!

    sill tanks

    how would these suit a ffr with the battery boxs behind the doors

    Perentie station wagon

    The 110 station- wagon has a slightly different tank. They were almost certainly modified GS tanks but are a bit shorter at the rear upper corner and have a smaller inlet. One of these would work in a 2 door, but not vice versa

    Good point, I'd have to have a look. If the battery boxs are in the way the other options would be better.
    Cheers, Andrew.

    What fittings would be supplied for the rear tank, i.e. pipes, new filler neck etc? and estimated cost to supply? Same for LH Perentie tank cost for additional hardware etc.

    Hi, cost for additional hardware all depends on what system is used to rig up the tank. Will it be a transfer set up or a selector valve used? Or just a balance hose? Separate filler or a combination y type filler? There are many options to rig up a tank, and like tyres everyone seems to have a preference.

    I haven't had a proper look at a perentie but I'm sure something fairly simple could be rigged up.

    I will definitely look at offering a whole kit with all fittings once I get going, but was hoping to sell a few first. If people would sign up for a tank if I offered the fittings I can certainly look at it and work out a price, probably a transfer pump type system.
    Cheers, Andrew.

    I'm definitely keen for left and right sill tanks for my 90. Do you have a rough idea of the capacity of each tank? I'm assuming these will fit with the factory side-steps.
    Cheers,

    Haven't had a good look at a 90 yet so not sure on capacity, but I think it should be similar to a 110 because unlike a 110 you don't have outriggers in the way (I think!, please confirm this), so should be around 70 litres.

    To achieve good capacity I don't think the factory side steps will fit, but can be easily modified. My rock sliders and others will fit.

    Cheers, Andrew.

    AFAIK 110 cill tanks will not fit any of the Perentie 4x4's due to the main tank on one side and the exhaust on the other.
    Thus the options in the poll.

    Desperately in need of extra capacity though!
