British Seagull fuel tank restoration

This shining tank was bent and battered, the top filler had been crudely cut off with a disc grinder.

Click on the images to enlarge them.

A new solid brass filler next was specially turned out on a lathe, then an specialist metal worker removed both ends.

When the ends were off the tank was straightened, then the ends were re attached.

Four days work, that is just the tank!

Easy, no but just look at the result.

A special British Seagull transfer will be fitted to it next.

This is the condition that this engine was in when it arrived from Pretoria, South Africa.

This picture shows the same engine and some months later, stripped and restored and ready to be sent back to its owner in Pretoria.

Basils Argie 15 gets a power upgrade

Hi Roy

Now Argie 15 equipped with electric engine and swimming ladder.

To protect the hull, I added 1,5 mm inox profiles to the runners.

Have a good day,
