Mustang Fuel Tank Strap Kit
Ensure your fuel tank stays secured in place with this 1981-1993 Mustang fuel tank strap kit! Your factory hardware and straps can become damaged or worn out over time, making your fuel tank insecure. Make sure you complete your install with this all in one kit! This Mustang fuel tank strap kit features two fuel tank straps, two dowel pins, fuel tank strap stud kit, and two fuel tank strap J-Nuts to ensure you have everything needed! The stud kit replaces your factory bolts to eliminate excess tank movement while replacing stripped or rusted-out hardware. Instead of fighting and pushing the fuel tank into place to thread in the factory tank strap bolts, you can now simply push the tank strap over the stud, install the nut on the stud and torque down the nut. This kit makes installing a fuel tank quick and easy!
