    Was looking at the tank resto kits in Eastwood catalog. Realized I can purchase 1 gallon of sealer from JCWhitney for price of kit. I figure the metal treatment stuff is plain ol' Metal Prep like I get from the paint supply house.Does anyone know what is used to remove the rust from inside tank? I need to do two large tanks so buying the sealer only and doing the rest with off the shelf chemicals would really save money. Thanks in advance for
    all help! Gary /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    I have had good luck having gas tanks boiled out or cleaned at the local radiator shop.

    88, That's one of those answers that makes me say, "Why didn't I think of that"! Thanks for the great idea!
