    Hi All

    Got my tank refurbed and when it was Sand blasted it ended up In the tank!

    Is it even possible to clean it out or is it better to change it?

    Yea just rinse it out with the garden hose bud, BUT straight after rinse the water out with petrol and fit and fill up asap :)

    when i got a tank blasted i made covers from thin tin and screwed them over the holes with a thin piece of foam underneath to act as a gasket.

    I didn't get mine sand blasted, but when I refurbed my tank I did the same.

    Easy enough to knock up a couple of covers and saves a world of pain afterwards :)
