    Default Restoring old metal gas tank

    Im restoring the cl 370s gas tank, i have cleaned out most of the muck using gasoline and steel bbs, it has had 2 baths of metal rescue and is undergoing a 3rd to get out the ladt bit of rust. I was planning on using wd40 to coat the inside of the tank to store it for a whilw before im ready to use it and keep it rust free anyone have any experiance doing this or have any advicd on keeping a tank and keepin it rust free? Im also considering puttig it in a vacuume bag.

    por-15 is a highly recommended frame coating product on the truck forum I am on...

    POR-15 Fuel Tank Sealer - Halfpint Vehicles Parts Vehicle Parts Accessories Motor Vehicle Parts Motor Vehicle Systems Tanks

    Eastwood is a higher end auto body tool and supplies type web site..I have ordered tools from them (they are a little slow) but good quality.

    Gas Tank - Under Car Coatings - Paints & Coatings

    not sure I would trust these web sites to buy from but I am sure you can find the products else where..

    KREEM has been around for decades. It gets excellent reviews on Amazon. POR 15 also has a great reputation.

    Proper prep is the key, whatever you use.
