Before & the product we removed from the interior of the tank from its previous tank sealing.
After - a beautiful, original tank cleaned, inspected, and sealed without any harm to the paint or chrome.
Sealing the Fuel Tank from a 1972 Yamaha RD250
This tank had a perfect & original paint job but a not-so-perfect gas cap gasket, which we replaced.
The tank had been lined only months before coming to us, but the lining was falling in on itself.
The previous gas tank lining, which was only a few months old, was falling in on itself because the old rust wasn't removed prior to sealing. Here's a small piece of the old lining.
