Hole in my gas tank

Got a hole in my gas tank 3 weeks ago, tried fixing it 5 fucking times with all these tank repair kits, each one lasted about 3 days then all repair stuff went soft again & leaked again, turned out all the repair kits on the market don't like ethanol which is in all modern fuels these days.

Ended up sending it to these guys http://www.fueltanks.co.uk/pages/renu.html 
last Tuesday for a full restoration

Woo! :) Gas tank is ready & will be here tomorrow, all restored & resprayed & my pocket is £444.00 lighter :(WTF!

Nice bike

Steep repair bill when you first look at it...but I guess a lot of time has been spent on it. As long as your happy with the finished product then all's week !!
