Cleaned out my gas tanks today and since it's been sitting around for a few years it was pretty chipped up. So, I decided to repaint it. I used a textured aluminium paint and I think it looks pretty cool. Also made a gasket for the filler cap since it didn't come with one. I used a mountain bike inner tube. I have used this method a few places on the car and it's easy and cheap material to work with.
I will install the cap and the fuel level sensor tomorow after the paint fully cures.
I noticed a few people asked for the paint codes that I used. I will post them as soon as I verify what they are. I know the red is Ford Lightning Red but I'm not sure about the white.
