New gas tank anti squeak
Posted by: gostridr ()

Hi All,

Being impatient and am hoping to get the new gas tank back in this weekend. Don't want to wait to receive the good anti squeak stuff from Clarks. I have found a rubberized, sound deadening, undercoating spray from Rust-oleum. Any thoughts on if this will be enough or should I glue an intertube or similar? Better safe than sorry as I don't want to try and take this thing back out!

Thanks,

Peter

Duct sealant from local home depot or ace. Brush on or putty knife. Heavy elastomeric coating.

The spray on undercoating is THIN. It will rub through.

The Clark's strips are similar to rubberized cork, like gasket material about 1/8" thick.

Sometimes you can find sheets of thick gasket material at auto stores, but avoid anything that will absorb water.
