Default Re: Rusted Fuel Tank Repair

I decided on the KBS product I'd linked in the first post. I've done the first two steps, cleaning and derusting. I'm amazed. The rust inside the tank is essentially gone and left a clean, etched surface. I'm going to pour in the sealer today and see what happens. It takes 96 hours for the sealer to fully cure so it will be a few days before I can check for leaks. There were no leaks after my solder job but the etching could have made some thin spots.
I tried to take some photos of the inside of the tank, before and after but couldn't get a decent one.
I'll keep you posted.
Incidentally, This tank was a gift from Scott, skjjoe, one of our members who stopped in during a family visit to Denver last summer. Thanks, my friend. It's gonna look cool on the old Jag when it's painted.
