    Default Installing side tanks

    I would like to either have my new side tanks installed or i can do it. I have a question on the mounting. I have 8"x64" polished russell side tanks that will be going into the side sponsons of my new to me Daytona 19'. Does anyone have an pictures of how this is done? i dont want to drill holes in the bottom of the boat so i was thinking a wooden block with some bolts. Maybe there is someone on here that can get me a good price on the install work and ill not even mess with it. I was told that TRG does amazing work.

    Thanks for the help

    Dave

    Hey mate :-) I have several tanks in my 21. I just built up the glass and fixed them in with stainless coach screws. I would get a picture but it's dark here and I have the sides covered in. I do have a picture of my friends and I gassing it up. The hardest part was calibrating the senders. It was a time consuming job but it was easy.
    I wouldn't stress to much if you gave it a go.

    I think I went overboard with the tanks and it is the same on the other side. I managed to put all of them in and it was simple.
    The gas station managers rub their hands together when I drive in lol.

    Todd does fantastic work. With that said, I'm certain you could do it. If I remember right, Todd just cut some nice blocks of wood, installed some thread inserts and glassed the blocks in. No holes thru the bottom. I love the idea.

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I was talking with some friends and im going to steal their idea and he is going to help me with the glass on the boat. Im not good with the glass but he does some very nice work. He also does awesome paint work. So thank you 19ftdana. If anyone is looking for paint and body work he is your guy.
