49 merc update

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by hvychvy, Jan 26, 2010.

  1. If you are gonna use a Mustang tank,get the larger,20gal one. Mine has the 65-66 tank and it's only 13. I'm gonna change mine out. There's lots of room for the 20 gal one.
     
  2. i saw a merc gas door on the highway awhile back looked like it was smashed alittle lolol

    it on the road. really looking forward to next year following that Merc everywhere.
