View Full Version : Fuel tank x1

I'm working on my x1 and want to have a fuel tank fabricated out of metal just to be the size of the tank and get rid of the tank cover. Is there a cheaper way like just painting my tank, cause I have seen a few people thathave painted there plastic tank and it looked perfect.

Hi yes plastic parts r just as easy as painting metal ones ,all you have to do is buy a plastic adhesion primer spray 2 coats let dry then paint as you were painting a metal tank . prime color clear you can buy the plastic primer from a auto paint shop...

I painted my tank on my 98 S3 with spray paint I got about 1000 miles on it with no problems so far.It comes out pretty good as long as you prep it good and do alot of wet sanding.
