Chaps,

Just a follow up to my earlier posting regarding my leaking petrol tank woes.

Today I collected it from the repairers and they have made a fine job. The tank was filled with acid and left to soak for a few days in order to dissolve all of the rust and a previous tank sealant that was in there. They then cut out three rusty areas and welded in new sections of steel, then repainted the whole tank in black.

The inside looks like new and the work was all done for 192.00 including vat, which I think was very reasonable compared to other quotes that I received.

I have no connection with the company or any individual working there, but I can thoroughly recommend them, so here are the details in case any of you have a similar problem.

Colchester Radiators,
2 Grange Farm Rd,
Colchester,
CO2 8JW.

I dealt with a helpful chap called Dave.

Yep I too have had radiators rebuilt there.
Methinks they should change the name!

Jai,

I agree, the name doesn`t do them justice as they also do number plates, air conditioning parts and repairs, batteries, brake shoe re-lining and much, much more.

The problem would be what to call themselves !

Hi Bob,
I found your post this week whilst trying to decide where to take my very rusty Flavia tank for restoration.
On your recommendation i took the tank to Colchester Radiators yesterday. Dave is indeed a helpful man and the price they are quoting is so reasonable compared to other places i've considered. I am confident they will do a good job!
Many thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Rob

Rob,

I am sure that you will be happy with their work, in fact I took my radiator down to them last week as it had sprung a leak, so I am also waiting to get that back.
