Spent today cutting out 2 more access hatches for it, and pressure washing
the inside. I plan on using marine
tex to fill in the mulitiudes of pin holes, and then fiberglassing over up to the top of the tank, then lining the interior
with red coat Fuel Tank Sealer
A new tank is 950 bucks, and this will cost ~100 tops to repair
. Most of the stuff I have.
Then I plan to epoxy
High density polyplastic cutting board material 2" high stips to the base to keep it out of the bilge water
This should last 20 years or more.
I have 2 pickups already plus 2 returns. Getting the tank out was a real hassle but in the end well worth the time and trouble.
