Thanks Dale

I'm still half considering trying the repair it. Might hit Harbor Freight on Saturday and see what their cheap plastic welder looks like. I'm also waiting to hear back on a shipping quote from the UK, as that's another option I have.

I'll let you know how it goes - I may still want your tank

I ended up "welding" it. It was time consuming (about 3 hours) but easy. This included melting in stainless steel mesh after filling the hole to give it added stregth.

Does anyone have a close up of the heat shield? I need to make one. Also any recommendations on the material to use would be great.

thanks,

Thats great! I think an aluminum shield would work for you. Make it a bit larger to divert the exhaust the next time.

I would find one off of any car that is the insulating material exhaust heat shields are made of.

It was not the exhaust output that burnt it, but the exhaust pipe itself pressing against the (shield while it existed, then the) tank. So I'm obviously going to get my exhaust bent/re-routed and I'll make sure its as far away from the tank as possible.

I like the idea of aluminum and maybe some heat reflective tape on it. Don't have any junk yards nearby and no time to go anyway.
