Dear Sun Spots: I was wondering if you might be able to help me. I am looking for a gas tank for a 1973 Raider. It’s one that has the double tracks and you sit down into it. Or if you would know of someone who might be able to make a tank. Any help would be greatly appreciated. – No Name, No Town.

Answer: In addition to responses from readers, contact Lebel’s Sheet Metal, 221 Lincoln St., Lewiston, at 782-2235. You can bring in your old gas tank or give them the dimensions needed and they’ll give you a price for the work to make a new tank. You can reach someone from 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Dear Sun Spots: You have been helpful twice before in listing my request for plant pots for school gardening projects. Any size pots are appreciated, including yogurt and cottage cheese (except clay, they are too heavy and porous).

As a master gardener, I’d be willing to meet with groups on starting garden projects and recycling paper and plastic greenhouse products. Call 783-6833. Many thanks for your support. – Steve, No Town.
