Has anyone had experience chemical dipping parts to remove paint and rust? I'm wondering if it's strong enough to remove POR-15 tank liner.
I called every furniture store around here trying to get my tank dipped - nobody would touch it even though it's just old enamel. I would imagine an engine rebuilding shop might be a better choice.
Why a furniture shop?
Or is that another name for a place that has Harleys.
Why don't you contact the people who make POR-15?
POR-15 also makes a stripper that works on other tank sealers, maybe it will strip their own product?
Their web page says this: "For those unfortunate customers who have had bad results from other inferior fuel tank sealers, we have developed these all new "HEAVY DUTY UTILITY & CYCLE TANK REPAIR KITS."
They feature everything found in our regular UTILITY & CYCLE TANK REPAIR KIT, PLUS a quart bottle of our famous Tank Strip to first remove that inferior coating that failed you."
Why are you trying to remove POR15 anyway?
Gobears, You really should try the acetone. I just did a tank for a fellow member that lives in SF last week and it worked just fine. I just noticed you are close by. If you want to send the tank to me or bring it up I would be glad to help. I have the acetone that I used in Georges tank still. If you came up in the morning, I'm sure we could have it cleaned out and sealed by the end of the day. I have everything here we would need.
