Now they're talking about bumping up ethenol in gas to 15%. Tank sealer might not work well with that mix.
if you use the right sealer fiberglass is the perfect materiel for a custom tank, easy to form into any shape you can dream up without the need for expensive equipment, or metal forming skills.
i offer a how to step by step DVD on making fiberglass tanks.
some bikes i made fiberglass tanks for.
