I have not worked on a a BIG RED gas tank that did not need a little bodywork. I use body filler and spot putty to fill in low spots to restore the shape of the tank. I will pain the tank with basecoat and clearcoat so it is essential to get the tank smooth or else any imperfections will show right through. I will sand the bodywork with 180, 220, and finally 400 grit sandpaper. I will sand by hand using a block due to the shape of the tank.

Got the bodywork done then recoated the tanks with epoxy primer. After the primer was dry I sanded it with 400 grit to prep it for the urethane primer.
