I have tanks cleaned and lines by Wyngaardt in Cpe Town, and it was about R800 per tank.

3 tanks and buying the stuff to do yourself is worth it.

But.......research the process.

Thanks a mil... will give him a shout  :thumleft:

There is a guy in PE who is a specialist in lining these old tanks. Could be worth it to send to him. Its not just a simple matter of throwing epoxy in it.

Let me know and I'll send you his contact details.

Collect as much old brake fluid as you can and toss it in the tank.  Just leave it in there for a week or 2 and hose it  out with water.  All the gunk will be disolved.

That's how I clean carbs of bikes that have been standing for a few years.  I dismantle the carbs, remove all the rubber bits and then toss it in a 5l container of old fluid.  Take it out 2 days later clean as a whistle.
