Hi, I'm new to the forum. I noticed this thread and though I'd share a pic of my tank. I just finished this bike in June. It's 100% powder coated. All the prep and sanding was done by me and I didn't use any Metal Lab or filler of any kind even though I had some nasty welds and wavy spots on the bare metal tank. Let me know what you guys think. I have tons more pics too...

I have been doing some powder coating at home for a couple years now. Still pretty back-yard, but I get some good pieces. Can you guys tell me if the powder is going to be good for a tank? I mean, will gasoline wash it off or break it down?

I believe I'm getting a screwin on a powder coat job that i'm going through now after reading this. I don't know much about powder coat but this guy that has my frame, tanks & fenders, is well established and covenant but i'm positive he said he was bondoing a dent on my tank and fender.

Dont give up on powder coating just because one coater didn't meet the requirements. Tanks can be powder coated with no problem and it holds up to gas. I have successfully used the jb weld method to fill little imperfections. It must be the regular jb weld, not the quick version. It also must be fully cured before coating. Do you have any pics of the tank? Is it only the jb welded areas that are bubbling?
