Some gas tank repair epoxy and a bit of rubber under the strap fixed it right up. I've pulled the tank twice, once for the leak, then again to replace the fuel pump, and as long as the tank isn't full, it's not too hard to remove. I'll be in town in a week or so and can help if you don't have it fixed by then.
I definitely won't have it fixed by then! Appreciate the help/advice as always, but when you come through, it's just a beer drinking mission Any chance you'll be in SF on a Thursday evening? That's our regular dinner & beer night every week.

Re: Updated running boards today

The treads had seen better days so I decided to redo them…



So I went and bought some…



I peeled off the old ones…



Cleaned everything up a bit…



And laid down some new ones…





Much better, and only $18.00.

Yep. Turned out even better than I expected. Took my time rounding off the corners and it looks almost factory like. Obviously super grippy and way better than the old rubber...and way better than the aluminum boards that had no traction on the outer edge. I used the leftover bits on the top of the rear chrome bumper. Safety third!
