    you rivet the straps to the inner hull. there's about 8" of dead space between what you see from the inside and the outside of the hull. you can try the gpr straps. I think the problem is going to be that the rxp tank has a step in it where the air box used to go, and that would make the straps, at least on 1 side loose.

    the big chrome thing is called a 2" thin walled tubing, as outlined. The gpr has an inner liner. The rivets are not seen.

    Guys. I got all screwed up when my tank just happened to drop in without heat or anything. I get the feeling I am not doing something right. In the rear of the tank (the old RXP front) it is very snug but I can push it down to the bottom without heating anything up.

    Any thoughts ?

    Bill, mine did the same thing, but I was afraid that over time the vibrations MIGHT rub a hole in the tank.

    As always THANKS !!!

    I just put the pads for underneath the gas tank into the hull now its a little tighter so heat gun is ready.

    I see where I have to heat it up but do I just do one corner @ a time or o ahead and push everything @ once ?

    After heating it up and looking at how it sits now I simply push down right ?

    I told you. It DROPS RIGHT IN. Use the SD straps and strap it down hard, and you are done.

    Everyone makes this soooo much harder than it is.


    the vigilante dropped right in. The RD needed a corner bent, and the spitfire I can't remember. I think the GH dropped in too.

    One corner, and you should have your straps ready to go in. Use them to settle it in. Pushing down helps.

    Like I said, you may not need to do ANYTHING but push it down and strap it hard..
