Epoxy primer and I'm sure it's not high temp

Post by Puff » October 9th, 2013, 7:38 pm

Gizmo stated elsewhere that " every free tank comes at a price".. This free tank is running over $1000.00 with steel, tools, supplies, and other things I never had in my shop. I've restored and built a lot of vintage motorcycles, engines and transmissions. Hard to believe I did not have some of the basic welding and cutting stuff.

Anyhow, my oil tank seems to have an epoxy primer as it's base coating , will I need to remove this and re coat with high temp primer before paint, I'm using a HVLP system to paint the tank and trailer?

Unfortunately yes - it has to go.
Epoxy won't take the heat and after you heat up the rig you'll have a bigger mess to clean up than you have now…. :D

Do you guys prefer soda blasting or sandblasting?

Soda blasting ....at least here is cheaper and seems more effective....funny how something free never is?

I only have sandblasting available here so I'm careful not to take real light weight stuff to him…. :D
