Fuel tank major surgery

Post by Lab_Rat835 on Sat Nov 02, 2013 10:07 pm

hi all thought i would post a couple of pics of the absolute ball ache i had repairing my petrol tank, ideally i would liked to have shot blasted it but i really didnt have the time to dig it out and set it up so just a good wire brush and grinder had to do, although because it wasnt shot blasted i couldnt solder the joints to seal any holes so i had to use a good sealer, after i put the sealer on i proped the tank so i could get the most amount of water in it then dusted on some flour to make sure there where no leaks, the yellow is a industrial anti-corrosion paint then i painted some standard underseal over the top to give it a bit of stone protection, hopfully should last a few years

regards
Danny

Don't know how I didn't see this, that's quite a bit of welding right there. Must have taken a good while.
