The BIG RED gas tank that I am restoring has some rust on the inside. The plan is to remove the rust using apple cider vinegar. After the rust is removed I will seal/coat the tank with RedKote. Rust removal details below.

Tank after soaking in vinegar for 3 days. Results not satisfactory. Need another plan.

Dumped this assorted hardware in the tank and shook it all around in an effort to break things up. Rinsed the tank with water than filled it back up with the vinegar.

After another 2 day soak in vinegar. Looking much better. Now I am ready to prep for tank coating.
