      As long as there still is a fuel tank - otherwise you'd clean the floor of your garage...:)...!

    The labor just to strip it down must have made you feel like you would never live long enough to see it through to the paint!! Fantastic looking job you did. I have to do mine now sooo...
    QUESTION 1: what is the white material you laid down into the louvers and other depressions? It looks like an epoxy sealant -like for gas tanks... Question 2: what is that tan/off white material you sprayed down after the gray primer, is that an epoxy primer... a high build primer? a spray filler? Inquiring minds wanna know.

      I used a lot of stuff. What you can't see is a clear rust converter I used directly after sanding (a German product, something like Fertan). After that the second step was an epoxy-based coating that works as a sealing for the converter. The yellow and grey colored stuff are two different primers (normal and fine) and the rest is regular spray paint. A lot of it. Took me 11 spray cans to finish...!

      Thanks for the input. Used a 2 part system and it looks pretty good. How did you find that stuff?? (rhetorical question -u don't hav to ans) Never seen it advertised in any of the magazines I've looked at -except for the Eastwood stuff... Time to ask Mr. Google I guess. And let me say, if i had a hat i'd take it off: SPRAY CANS? wow, It looked like you used an HVLP unit... That job was absolutely awesome work for spray can paint!
