After a complete boiling of the tank, the exterior has been coated with a synthetic rubber compound. New straps, anti-squeak pads and hardware were used for mounting the tank back on the frame.
The interior of the tank received a purple-coloured epoxy coating that resists moisture. This photo is looking down inside the fill hole.
Here's a look at the new gas tank sending unit which will mate up to the new stainless steel gas line.

We painted the mouth extension with POR-15 and applied a new rubber boot and overflow tube.

New mounting screws and a gasket were used in assembly.

The plastic strap will be used to attach the long gas tank overflow tube to the bumper brace.
