I did indeed buy a tank from India, but it was a steel tank for my Commando Fastback (Red of course). The cost was so low compared with UK sourced tanks that my logic was that I could actually afford to buy three tanks and if necessary use them to make one good tank if the quality was suspect. In the event the tank arrived within a week, no import duties were levied, and it was well packed.
I then checked all the threads and found them to be the correct threads and all in exactly the correct place. I then did a fit check and everything was spot on.
However I did buy the tank in raw condition as I wanted it panted with the seat tail unit to ensure a perfect match. Before painting the tank was pressure tested to ensure that it did not leak. I highly recommend this as the tanks are fabricated and not stamped out as the originals were.
Sadly I have no experience of an Indian made aluminium tank. Would I buy another Indian made tank? Definitely but I would again paint it locally and pressure test it.
