POR 15 tank sealer kit
HOW LONG EIGHT YEARS COST £50 FOR A KIT CONTACT WWW.FROST.CO.UK
THE USED tank I found for my RGV was straight but with a coat of surface rust threatening to block carbs forever. I’d used this kit from Frost Restorations before to good effect, so I went through the process of using the three bottles (rust remover, cleaner and sealant) to make my tank good for years to come. And it worked... sort of. Largely, it has survived: but this application didn’t spread and adhere as effectively as before. I suspect it’s probably my own fault for not quite following the instructions to the letter – maybe it wasn’t fully dried between stages. Whatever, it’s now flaking in places (although not all over – it seems ethanol isn’t necessarily the issue), exposing steel which is suffering light corrosion again. It’s notoriously difficult to remove: I’m now faced with a dilemma with what to do about a tank with great paintwork but in need of help inside. I’d be cautious about using it again – be bloody diligent with the instructions if you do.
Flakiness is evident in many areas
