  1. After receiving a replacement kit - (thanks KBS), I followed the stripping instructions to the letter but the whole of the failedcoating was not removed. However, after repeating the washing process numerous times, I felt that the remianing sealant had adhered well enough to continue with the re-sealing process. This time the sealant did not foam as it had doen originally and everything appeared to proceed as it should do. Result : - one sealed tank... but lingering doubts that the sealant is 100% as it should be.. so making sure that I fit a good fuel filter !
  2. Hi there, Just looked inside the tank to see whether anything had changed and was surprised to see sheets of the lining material hanging down. It is a complete mess and needs to be redone. Getting the failed coating out is going to be a real problem. Surface rust has formed behind the sheets and there appears to be little adhesion between the coating and the inside of the tank. The treatment has failed catastrophically. I guess that something has gone wrong with the preparation. Please advise. At this rate it would have been cheaper to buy a new tank.... Allan
  3. Phew! That's a relief! The residual sealant has now hardened and the can and contents are stuck to the bottom of the outer container that I put it in. The strength of the bond between the can and the outer container is prodigious and very reassuring! Thanks for your very quick response. Great product.
  4. Hi there, I have just emptied the gas tank of Gold Seal Gas Tank Sealer and was surprised to see the silver liquid began foaming and bubbling eventually overflowing the can. I bought the system a year ago and have just got around to using it. I did the preparation 4 days ago and left the tank to dry for 3 days. A little fluid came out of the tank when I was checking it before applying the last stage and so I heated the tank internally by using a hot air blower as shown on the video. The tank did become quite hot and I rotated it to ensure all of the water was evaporated. The tank was left for an hour to cool down but it was a warm day here in Florida. Temperature when I inserted the sealer was bout 75F. The overflowed sealant eventually collapsed and is curing quickly. Just wondering how the sealant will turn out... 'b'Can I be sure that the sealant has worked?'/b' The tank was in reasonably good condition to start with - but I am undertaking a car restoration and wanted to make sure that the tank was clean and in as good a condition as possible. regards, Allan
