    I was advised that nub at the front of the tank was solid so I decided to angle grind a few millimetres off...

    Guess what...it ain't solid on one side but is on the other which makes me think a bit of a bubble formed there during the injection moulding process...
    Don't take that as gospel though....

    I was inspired to use the kitchen sink by @Sprinter to clean out my fuel tank...
    It's worked out very well....

    Obviously the wife ain't here at the moment...

    Cut cardboard or plastic template to fit it's only coming out as soon as you have swished the chemicals around

    I thought it had to be sealed up really well so it doesn't leak out ...

    And should the balloon burst you are covered in the shit, the template idea is a good way to go as you swill it about then remove the templates simple.

    What if I used extra strength condoms ( first time for everything I suppose )...

    I tried a plastic bag and duct tape to cover the cavities when I was swilling it out just to clean it all out with little success :confused:

    A firm in Yorkshire has a large supply of condoms duck, they bought them from a company in Northamptonshire,apparently they were marked as extra large but are due to be sent back cos they are too small. I could have a word if you like. :D

    About to apply some quiksteel epoxy in the hole i put in my tank..
    You get two tubes off Amazon for a tenner and the label comes out the tube and gives you instructions on how to use and you can reseal what you don't use ( bonus )..I forget who recommended it on here but thanks for the information its appreciated...
    Wish I could apply it from inside the tank but I shall do the best I can and with two helpers pointing out where the hole is I think it will be ok...:p
