Now that the gas tank has had the paint chemically stripped, media blasted, dents pulled, and the inside of the tank has had the rust removed and coated with Redkote it is time to prime the bare metal. First I will clean the tank with wax and grease remover and let dry. Next I will paint the tank with two coats of epoxy primer. The epoxy primer will provide excellent corrosion protection to bare metal. After the primer is dry I will do the necessary bodywork and then cover the bodywork with another two coats of primer.
