  • ATTN Brent!

    I posted this fuel system tech thread back in June and mentioned the work you do on fuel tank restorations in post #1. If there is anything you might want to add to this either for or against what i wrote? Feel free to add a comment onto that first post. Your input would be valuable to the information.

      Would love to know Brent's preferred brand of sealer, especially since ethanol seems to eat thru anything

      I too have wondered how a 1 QT can is supposed to treat the entire inside of a tank

      I guess since he does a bunch of tanks as a group, it is cost effective to buy 100 gallons and treat them all at once

        Wowza, that looks great! it also looks like a helluva lot of work, but clearly worth it

        and you obviously have it down to a science since you have clearly avoided distortion. Must be using TIG, in order to seal a tank seam

          I am wondering how they were originally posted to the site, because i do not see them in Brent's media album.

            Brent thanks

            Can you upload them back to your media album on your profile page when you find the time. Then i can see what happened from that point and repost them

          Brent can you repost the gas tank pics to a new post here on this thread.. I am looking into the situation and do not want to disturb that post #5
          Thanks

            Gas Tank Rust Removal
            by CSPIDY
            Finally got around to addressing the rust in the gas tank of my 28 Tudor.
            the plan is to remove it, fill it with 10 gallons of Evaporust, clean with Por-15 cleaner degreaser, then prep with the Por-15 metal prep, followed with Por-15 paint coating.
            what are your thoughts? I have heard good reports on the Por-15 paint but have some reservations using an internal coating.
            any advise...

            Gas tank sealer
            by Corley
            When I built the 29 pickup, I used some Red Sealer on the gas tank. It came in a quart can, and when I dumped out the excess, I had almost a full quart left over. So, I saved it. Saw that can a few months back, shook it, and it was still liquid. So, I planned to use it on the new tank that I just welded a new filler spout in, just I case I had any pin hole leaks. It is a VW van tank, long and...

            YARGTT ( Yet Another Rusty Gas Tank Thread )
            by cpf240
            I've been following the various threads here on how members have been dealing with rusty fuel tanks. While I'd love to pull the tank and ship it off to Brent, that will have to wait.
            The Rust911 concentrate should arrive today. After a PM session over FB ( Facebook, not the ) with the Rust911 people, I'll be picking up 10 gallons of distilled water to use in the process.

            As...

            After you get it clean .....
            by BillLee/Chandler, TX
            I am getting ready to replace a leaking gas tank in my Tudor, I have a very good one coming from Berts, but ..... I'm not totally sure what I should do now.

            I have read Brent's thread over on the old barn regarding getting a tank clean, by cutting apart and then re-welding. But what do you do AFTER you get it clean? What do you do to keep it from turning back into a rusty tank?

            rust in 1930 tank
            by benbuilder
            Happy Independence day.
            I have a 1930 coupe I just bought. Has a chevy 350 in it. I installed a glass fuel filter. I see a lot of rust particles. I know the tank is not removable. I would like to drain the tank and coat it. I realize This will be difficult because it is not removable. Any thought from someone who has done this? process and products used?

            Gas Tank Baffles
            by gdaquilina
            Do the gas tank baffles ever come loose and bang around in the tank? I have a very sharp metallic sound when going over bumps that sounds as if it is coming from the gas tank. I have checked everything that is anywhere near the cowl for looseness and signs of metal on metal contact and have come up empty. Any ideas?

            cutting into back side of gas tank
            by Ken Parker
            In a psot below is /are some photos and partial write up about cutting the top off a tank. This is my experience wth cutting holes into the back side of a tank. Looking thru the filler hole or the gauge hole I could see some of the sealer loose in the bottom of the tank and other parts peeling from the surface.. The sealer was put in by previous owner in 1988. My first cut was the center section....
