'72 Overlander Black Tank

Hey folks,

I am on the other side of my rear end separation mountain, frame is redone and new tank will be ordered. What I am looking for now are suggestions. The old setup consisted of a galvanized tin pan approx 25"x53"x7.5" that the tank sat in, next was this orange foam pad of sorts that directed the tank effluent to the sanitary pipe, finally you have the tank.

I'd like to completely replace all three of these parts, VTS has the tank anyone have an idea of where I can get the pan and and the foam thing? I have approx. 8000 pictures of this project, I just need a venue to post them.

Thanks and Peace ,

Dave The pan can be made up by yourself or a local sheet metal shop. The foam is probably to cushion the bottom a bit, IIRC mine had some styrofoam underneath it or on the sides. I think you can upload your pictures on this site or you can use one of the photo hosting sites and then use the image link to post them inline with your text. I use picassa/google but there are others like photobucket and flickr.

The foam is simply styrofoam sheets. I have made pans out of heavy gauge galvanized steel. FYI, you don't really need 20gauge metal for this. Don't ask how I know this...
Now would be the time to add a grey tank, which sits next to the black tank in that rear area. Ours is ten gallons, but you can easily reverse the sizes of the tanks, and have a ten gallon black, and a 25-35 gallon grey tank in that spot. You can go with a pair of 20's as well.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
