The instructions say the tank must be completely dry inside, so I let the tank dry overnight. The tank and sealant must also be at room temperature. The sealant is fairly thin so it will flow well. Make sure to stir it well.
I used aluminum foil tape to seal the fuel pickup hole and then coated the screws with WD-40 to prevent the sealant from sticking to the threads.
A slick magazine cover or other slick paper makes a nice disposable funnel.
The tank was turned every 5 minutes to make sure that all inside surfaces were coated. The tank fill hole was sealed with duct tape. Make sure to use a drop cloth.
I drained out the excess sealant after turning the tank for about 45 minutes. I was surprised to see that almost 3/4 of the sealant came back out. So I poured it back in and turned the tank for another 30 minutes.
Instructions say to drain the tank for at least 30 minutes. This is how much came out. I could seal two more tanks with what I have left over!
I removed the screws and foil tape at the fuel pickup hole. The inside of the tank was perfectly coated with sealant. It's pretty hard to see but I am convinced the sealant has coated the entire tank. These are the best pics I could get.
To avoid any puddles, I still need to turn the tank every 15 minutes or so for the next few hours. I am very pleased with this product. I used the Eastwood tank sealer kit on another project and the KBS tank seal kit is much easier to use.
