    Thanks for the update, totally understood on the delay. Hopefully everything will be OK for the fabricator.

    Was going to make a cover, but im being lazy and would just rather buy the tank honestly lol. Even if it was $1,000 id still be down, i know glenn's are like $600-700? But sadly dont fit an IRS car

    I know others have discussed Glenn making an 00R tank and he isn't interested. Some of you 00R owners might explore the differences between a 95 tank an 00 tank. I've never had them side by side. From pictures and memory, the 00 has the lower front corner cut off to clear the IRS. The rest of the tank looked the same. If that is the case, maybe buying a 95R tank would be an option and then going to a competent fabricator and having the corners modified would be a solution.

    I can tell you I am running a Glenn's tank in my car and REALLY glad I did it after buying two bladders over the years.

    Honestly...... this might be a idea that i might just try.

    If anyone has any Glenn's 95 tank pictures... please do post them, so i can gauge what type of project ill be diving into before actually diving!

    Okay, so im thinking about pulling the trigger on Glenn's 95R tank and then modifying it to fit in my 2000'

    Fitment wise, post up what you know is different that would cause install issues

    *Fuel pump different location/size
    *Different fuel level sensor
    *Different tank vent

    Im more curious about what would need to be modified in order to bolt it into a IRS equpied car

    Both the 95R and 00R fuel cell cans are aluminum. Maybe contact Fuel safe about building the 00R fuel cell made from steel and then modify it into a tank with baffling?
