I guarantee that aside from part 38 of my '76 Cosmo Restoration, you will not find more footage on YouTube of someone shaking a fuel tank. You have my word that this is the most tank shaking coverage you will see in any video. Why so much tank agitation? Because in this episode I clean and seal the 40 year old fuel tank using the POR-15 fuel tank restoration kit. This is something which several have requested be shown so I figured as sealing was a common issue for old fuel tanks, why not dedicate an episode to the task. I begin by recycling some of the cleaning footage from the past two episodes then move right into the process of the POR-15 kit. First any remaining debris is "chained out" by using the old trick of rattling some chains around inside the tank. Then the tank is cleaned with the supplied cleaner, etched with MetalPrep and finally coated with the sealer. The end result is a tank looking better inside than the day it came the assembly line which will not be subject to future corrosion. To go with the spiffy clean interior, the outside is given a coat of POR-15 rust preventative paint as well.

And did I mention this is my first episode in HD?!
