I'm following Derek's advice and taking my time with this. So far on the third and final session with the POR15 cleaner/degreaser.

This is what came out when I drained the fuel - coffee anyone!



And this is what the cleaner/degreaser looks like when it comes out



Flush it out with water tomorrow evening then once dry I'll use the metal prep stuff.

Cheers

As advised I have taken my time with this and taken advantage of the warm weather to ensure it has been 100% dry between stages.

Poured the paint in through the sender unit hole yesterday and it appears to have been a success. I can get a glimpse of the main body of the tank and it appears to have coated well. I left it upside down once I had finished rolling it around as I was worried about paint blocking up the pick up pipe (Simon has me worried!) I did feed some thick wore down the pick up pipe to stop paint getting in but changed my mind as I thought it either might get stuck in the bottom of the tank or maybe drag semi dry paint back up, fingers crossed it should be ok.



Cheers
