Gas tank installed
I may have mentioned in some earlier posts that I had the gas tank hot tank acid cleaned which was a waste of money in the end. Not only did all the solder joints disappear....but the brass plug was lost as well. This created a lot more work (and delays as well) in having to re-solder the joints ....and having to source that dang plug. I sealed the tank with the Por 15 sealing kit, painted the upper surface black and the lower silver.
The fuel filler boot was another one of those "I hope I never have to do that again" jobs(very difficult).I think I battled with that for at least an hour ....my hands will probably be sore for days.
But I'm thrilled it's finally back in it's right place!..
I also shortened the neck by 3/4" which probably could have been cut down a tad more....to 1". Getting the tank in without scratching it here and there a little is almost impossible....I'll have to get the touch up paint out to tidy it up a bit.
