Re: Slow E-Z poxy or alternative?

Vinylesters don’t like to stick to epoxies, that’s for sure, so I’ll offer another option. I have an all-aluminum Davis DA-2A that is the only one ever built with wing tanks. Alas the original builder didn’t know about Pro-Seal or chose not to use it so the tanks have always leaked a bit. And as you can imagine any bit is too many bits in this case. What to do?
We sloshed the tanks with Eastwood Gas Tank Sealer, specifically the type for gas with ethanol just in case. That was a year ago. The plane hasn’t yet flown because we’re doing a new panel, but the tanks are deliberately full and haven’t leaked a drop in that time. We used two gallons and by the time it all dried we’d lost less than a gallon of capacity.
It’s just a thought…

Sanjay, sorry for the delay in response as the last two weeks were eaten up by preps and attendance at Sun N Fun as Richard and I volunteer at the composite workshop all week and bring a lot of stuff for demos.
