Has anyone got any decent pictures of the optional extra fuel can that fits in the spare wheel on a 96? Need to get renovations started on mine. Thanks

There are a few photos on UKSaabs (http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/UKS/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=89571) taken from the Accessory Manual ...
as well as some quirky driving helmets (anyone want to own up to wearing one of these ?) !

Love the helmets, but really love the shaped fuel cans. I don't suppose anyone's got a "spare" one?
(I always like to carry 5 litres in a jerry can in the boot. It would be nice to have it hidden away below the boot floor)

Hi Roger,
I acquired a tank when I bought the 2T longnose and have attached a few pictures.
It has seen better days, has bee repainted and bares no SAAB markings or stickers that I can seen, but the repaint is quite thick in places.
It doesn't leak though.



Cheers

The four feet have been retrofitted to the can.

Looked at the feet more closely, Yes Hex heads welded on and what looks like faced off nylon screws inserted.
Cheers
