Thanks for the suggestion. I looked at KBS website and says I would need to buy the Rust Blast too. I don't think I'll take this route because of the baffles inside the tank. The tank isn't like other tanks I've had in other vehicles. Cheapest I can get a tank for is around $200 with shipping, so I'll just keep mine and clean the outside and paint the outside the tank.

Almost t-boned someone who lost control of their minivan, but lucky I slowed down, used my brakes, and the person went towards the right and almost off the road. I was in the left lane going around 50 MPH on a icy 4 lane road.

Got the daughters jetta glx vr6 running prelaced coil pac and ran comp.test checked plug wires , found the wires were not snaped on to the plugs and plugs not tightend down (loose) had to make a tool to install plug wires what a tight space .also replaced rear struts for her. runs great now and on all cylinders go figure . Took for a test drive ,I was impressed spun the tires from 2nd to 3rd at 30mph I had to let off of it. She should be good to go now . and is very happy to have her car back
