Is Safe To Sandblast A Motorcycle Gas Tank?
“I am painting my bike a different color so I am sandblasting the metal parts from my bike. Do you think it would be safe to sandblast the gas tank? Do you think it would build up static electricity and if it sparked that it would blow up? How should I go about sandblasting the tank? Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!”
Sandblasting is a very secure industrial technique if you follow a minimum security requirements. if you’re going to sandblast the tank: remove all the gas from it first, take it off the bike and then blast away bust don’t get too deep or else you’re likely to puncture it and cause leaks, then be sure to clean it really well before you put gas in it or else you’re going to have scarred cylinder walls
