    And FWIW, the wet sump Crossflow in my Seven also leaked like crazy when I purchased the car. Since I had the engine rebuilt, it's been dry as a bone. So, I think you can get these sealed up. :)

    Vlad- it actually was an XC60, but also had a tow capacity of 3300. My trailer is a Montrose, and weighs 1700. My Seven is 1200, so I was under.

    You were probably planning on this anyway, but bringing a Lotus 7 book, or something similar, to the registration to prove they never had bumpers might be a good idea.

    Have my 65th next year, and combining a track day or two with a trip to Europe was near the top of my list. Seems like BaT would be the easiest, as you're only dealing with one company.

    Maybe contact Stewart and find out where he got the tank? Then you can be sure what size fitting to get, and eliminate the guess work.

    I used Passport to ship my Caterham from Denver to St. Louis, and was happy with their service. However, it was 13 years ago so not sure how useful a recommendation it is.

    Pull the grommet. It will easily fit through the hole then. Its not hard to refit the grommet.

    I do this every year when I polish my Seven.
