Making tank watertight

Recommended Posts

Hi I am in the process of using one of your tank sealer kits. I have used the KBS strip to remove the old poor quality liner. I am trying to use the KBS clean now before I use the rust blast. The problem I have is sealing the tank up to wash the solution round. I 2 holes to seal up on the bottom 1 is for the fuel tap, the other for the fuel sender. I have tried ducktape, but it leaks :( what else can I use?

You can use corks to plug up the holes. Or you can put plastic over the holes and attached the plastic to the tank with duck tape that way the KBS Klean is mostly in contact with the plastic versus the adhesive from the duck tape. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

Some of the old liner still remains (the grey matter in the picture), tried more KBS strip, but it does not want to shift. I also used the jetwash on the insides today. Still in there. It seems it is bonded in there and is stuck very solid. I have had loads of chunks of old liner come out, but have a couple of spots in the bottom of the tank that I just cant seem to remove. As they are fixed in so firmly I was wondering if the new liner will still bond to the old remaining material? All I have left to do now is flash the tank with Rust Blast before I put in the new liner. IMG_1122_zps656259e6.jpg

Cool, will try to find some at the weekend. I was about to use the rustblast when I noticed there was a couple of small patches left. I have used all the cleaning solution up, and don't really want to splash out on any more as I have spent quite alot on all the products already. Can I use the MEK , rinse then go to the rust blast?

I followed the instructions to the T for the tank sealer, but it seems there ot enough paint to go round as there a a few exposed areas as can be seen. Do I need to get an extra can of sealant to run round again to catch the bits that were missed?
