You can buy the applicators on EBay for $17 instead of $150 for the 3M. 3M plungers fit. Make sure you use the 10:1 plungers and mixing nozzles

Google - 'DP8005 for crossed link polyethylene' for more info.
Guys, don't use this 3M DP8005. It sticks well to the poly but fuel breaks it down eventually.

This stuff does work. It sticks to the poly to the point you can't scratch it off with your fingernail. Fuel will not break it down. The draw back is it takes a week or two to set.

Hey guys here to learn how to convert my subframe into a gas tank. Thanks for all the help it looks like a bunch of good information on this thread!

I'm in the process of coming back to the United States from Georgia with 49 hours of travel time so this gives me some downtime to start looking into what I need to do once I'm home to get this noble unicorn fixed up and ready to ride down through Mexico for the next year or two!

I had a real good look at this recently and gave up- worked out there is probably only a couple of litres available. All reports say it takes ages for the fuel to transfer into the subframe when you fill up- painful at the petrol station while you riding mates are waiting! No way around it unless you use a bigger line into the tank- I was using the existing fitting in place for the Safari tank, which is usual fuel line size ~ 7mm 5/16".
I feel a 3 litre ish fuel bladder strapped to the rear guard is a better easier option
