VL tanks had no blue coating from the factory.

Probably something done professionally. Aircraft or Renu type.

Re: Tank Coatings, Factory ????

Yesterday I pulled a set of 3.5s out of storage from a '65 that I bought in '75, long before the riding public became anal about coatings. Supposedly it had been a Kansas City PD machine.

The bottoms of the interiors are slopped with what appears to be the same tar-like material that was used to secure the felts inside of pan covers.

My question is: What was the material that the Factory used to secure the felts?

Thanks in advance,
