See link below. I had a custom stainless tank made to fit inside my spare. I have it set up to run dual pumps in the summer with water and ice and I can yank the tank and run the front meziere with coolant for winter months.

When drilling the holes into the trunk slightly over size and use a 3/8" diameter hose to create a grommet. cut a piece for the circumference of the hole and then slice one side of the hose the long way and put it inside. It will protect the lines in and out from rubbing against the rough edge. A better solution than the blue tape and it blends in.

I got the tank from BIP, and it came with it.

Decided to go a different route and build my own tank. My original tank is for sale in the classifieds!

Here's some pics of the new one I made:

Nice looking work.

For those of us not so handy, I have their 7 gallon tank/pump for my tvs2300. Nice unit for ~$325.

W211 E55 AMG
Hello!
Im just starting to porgressing E55 lines too, just one question, what is minimum size, 5/8" ?? ( I have Aeroflow black 5/8 aluminium fuel line whip ) but I wonder is it too cramped for the flow?
I going to set two pumps, one in OEM place, and one to trunk tank.
