I just don't think adding a piece of metal not specifically engineered to crumple in the right direction upon impact is that good of an idea. Like already mentioned, Kelly got hit HARD and no problems with gas or fire (anyone ever seen a burned mustang in a junkyard?).Mine is 55 years old, 400,000+ miles since 1990 and I put my 22 gal tank in back in 1992. We refused putting in these panes at my shop due to potential liability issues. If it was hit and there was a fire or other damage, who is to prove the added metal did or did not contribute to the problems?
