I have read through all the gas tank clean threads and am wondering if I should do mine before I put it back in. It is empty and has been for a few months while I restore my front end.

I sprayed it out with water and let it dry in the sun while I painted the outside. It doesn't look like there are any flakes or anything inside, but it now has a thin layer of rust it looks like. Maybe from spraying it out. Should I go through the whole acid process, or is this clean enough?

I would just put a new fuel sock in it & fill it with fuel and go with the tank as is.

Be sure your return fuel line isn't plugged up or you will have problems! :idea:

Sounds good. Thanks, Mike. I got a new sock, nut and gasket.
