Rusty fuel tank?

BFY has the perfect solution for a rusty fuel tank for your Beetle, Transporter or Karmann Ghia.  The fuel tank liner will also plug up small pin holes at the bottom of your tank.  This is what you need to do.

1  Remove fuel tank from Your VW.

2  Plug up fuel drain hole.

3  Purchase some Metal etch.   This can be found at your local hardware store, or paint supplier.

4  Poor the metal etch into the tank, along with a old metal chain.  Once the chemical is in, you will need to shake the fuel tank till your arms feel like they are going to fall off.  Once you have done this you need to rest and then do it again.

5  Poor out the solution and dispose of properly.

6  Poor in the fuel tank liner, and slowly rotate untill you have a nice even coat.   Let air dry over night

7  Install the fuel tank back into the car.

We do have all the new rubber lines, and gaskets to reseal your finished fuel tank.
