Re: Fuel tank

Painting stainless isn’t a good idea. Stainless requires contact wit air to be “stain.less”. It’s also difficult to get paint to stick to stainless.

Thanks to all that responded to my fuel tank problem. It came out with no problems other then cutting the fuel inlet pipe off to clear the hatch way. It has rust spots, leaks, where the baffles were spot welded. I am about to order a new tank but they only have 304? Not 316SS here in Columbia.I plan to epoxy paint the outside.
Thanks group once agin.
