    Patching a gas tank?

    Hey so long stroy short i put a hole through my tank. The only replacement is around 400 bucks so I would really like to be able to re use mine.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could patch this up?

    X2 on JB Weld

    I've used it in the past and with the proper prep, it will outlast the tank.

    I JB welded mine 8 years ago... but it was just a crack/split. You could try fitting another piece of plastic in the hole and see??? As far as prep, I sanded the spot real good with 80 grit to get it nice and rough and then cleaned it with starter fluid, let dry, applied about 4 thin coats letting it cure inbetween coats.
