    Gas tank repair

    I picked up some pan tanks recently. Left has tank shift mount replaced but shift gate area is filled with bondo, otherwise looks nice. I got two right side tanks both with pretty good dents. One is 51-53 and someone chiseled off the emblem mounts, creating a couple of holes.

    I plan to bead blast to remove filler and see what the metal actually looks like. I'll post some pix once blasted.

    So who/where is a good place to send tanks for repairs.

    A hand held mapp torch or heat gun. It'll soften the bondo and use a cheap plastic scraper.
    That will save your media.

    That heat gun trick works on JB weld also.
    Makes it super dry & flakes off when you scrape it.
