Re: another subject on 86 xj6

Hi Ed

Sorry to read about your leaking fuel tank. Blake is right, if you want to
be sure of doing a good job without any potential hitsches then try and find
some proprietary tank sealant. Better still try and source an alternative
tank from a scrapper.

Having said that :-

I have repaired two tanks with that fibreglass strand/resin mix that you can
buy from any car part shop. Once was on an old Honda motorbike witha
pressed steel tank that had simply rotted at the base and the other was on a
top seam on a Volvo 340.

The KEY to success and this is absolutely CRUCIAL if you go the fiberglass
strand/resin route is that the tank must be absolutely clean and above all
there must be NO petrol (even vapour) around the effected area. The
slightest hint and the resin will simply drop off. It will look ok at first
but all you will need to do is flick it with your finger nail and off it
comes. Make sure there is plenty of overlap past the effected area and put
an extra coat on just for good measure.
