Reply to "Fuel Tank Removal - Another Question - What if the Engine has no Heads?"

Perry, you will be appalled to find the amount of dirt, corrosion and rust behind the average Pantera gas tank! You'll need screwdrivers, scrapers and finally a shop-vac to clean the area, then rattle-can it with lots of epoxy. Most tanks sat on rubber pads and those have long vanished so the tank now sits steel-to-steel on a subframe pinch-weld. Not the stock pads (and the rubber on the hold-down strap) soaked up water and rusted some tanks from the outside-in.
