has to be new, or all the garbage in the gas tank will ruin their chrome tanks. just paint it if you have to do the half cover. try to find a new one. how mine was done

Whats wrong with makin a cover??Thats the only way anybody out here will plate a gas tank.It looks the same

i was told $1000 to plate a brand new tank for my 77 monte and then they held onto it for 4 months and told me they couldnt do it cause it was zinc plated and they couldnt strip the zinc off...

im like wtf ive sanded the zinc off before on parts ive polished before plating...
