Refurbished fuel tanks ~ Jack Robert

Jack Robert 37VT17 just installed their refurbished fuel tanks. Owner, Lee Anderson's had a few  lessons learned to share:  Don't expect to meet a schedule unless you know suppliers, parts, work and the weather have agreed to it. The actual work was easy, but the wait time inbetween things has been terrible. The biggest problem was getting the old fiberglass coating off. It took several experiments but had to burned off in the end. Once that was off the rest of the refurbishing went quickly. Cost was about half of what new tanks would have cost. We have to finish up with the details now and we expect this to be "putsy" as well. Shooting for first week of August for splash.
