Not that mutherscratcher
Hey guys, several years ago I bought a U.S. gas can from my local flea market and have just now gotten the time to fix it up a little. I noticed it had a slow leak around the bottom where the seam is, so i reenforced it with some jb weld all the way around and even up the side seam as some preventitive medicine (even tho it showed no signs of leakage). The thing I was needing some advice on was this. The inside of the can has some flakeing that comes off, i guess like how paint will flake after a while and its baige in color. Is there any way to get this stuff out compleately? Im sure paint flakes are not good for ones gas tank so I was needing a way to remedy this little snag before i use this. I have thought about filling it half way or so with dry sand and kind of sloshing that around and looking to see if that helps, but figured i'd better ask some of the more experienced people here for their insight. Also if I do get all the flakes out would i need to coat the inside with something like rustolium or just leave it as is? Thanks for all your replys and advice. Other than those little thngs it seems like a good gas can that still has a number of years worth of sevice left on it.
