Painting a plastic gas tank.


Recommended Posts


My Bultaco Sherpa motorcycle has a plastic tank. I have painted it with acrylic and achieved a superb finish BUT once I apply a fuel proof coating (and/or decals), the paint blisters away from the plastic surface. This is obviously because the tank is vapor permeable, as is the acrylic finish but the decals and lacquer trap the vapour.

Has anyone found a suitable coating for the INSIDE of a plastic tank to form a barrier layer to this vapour?
