They seem to require some welding to get filled, but maybe the OP does have some installation hardware with them but I'm sure he will chime in again.

You see NJ now we are getting somewhere. :p
James please take pictures of the hoses and hardware still on the car. Irt will help the new owner to figure out how they were mounted and connected.

Woick in Germany used to sell them, 60 l each side. Filling in the rear wheel arches in front of back wheels.
If you have a body lift of 40 mm, you can increase the height. On my 290 I did the effort to make new tanks with the same bottom line, 40 mm taller, 75 l per side.:)

I have the Woicke ones Rolf. They’re nice but so stick out a bit under the standard body lift so mine are out for some cosmetic dent removal total fuel increase is 120l ah I will get you far, even in sand.

My old G had the ones from DAERR and they were 69 and 70l each. Also stainless steel. I really miss them.
