You know that nitromorse will strip the paint off that tank with minimum effort? Flapper wheels is doing it the hard way.

Since they changed the nitomors recipe, a flap wheel may be the 'hard way' but it is now the quicker way!
Tried each on two tanks, chemicals took forever, wire wheel took about 40 minutes!

Oh, and while it seems like makingextra work. Re-check the tan is fuel-tight BEFORE you paint it. Sometimes the paint was the only thing blocking a pinhole. Best to find out first! Or just POR15 it when it's stripped.

I can also recommend taking some steps to protect against the adverse effects of ethanol at the build stage. Particularly fuel lines, gauze filters, fuel tap gaskets and needle valves or you risk running into problems 6 months down the line. A'79 bike was not built to deal with it.
