It took an evening once I had everything scuffed etc and a good plan on how to approach - honestly once you watch the video and take your time really not that hard

Thanks, Julian. I did watch the video and learned a lot. I even took a couple of pages of notes to review when I'm in the shop!

I think it worked out fine. The big advantage is that you can mix up small batches of tank sealant as you need it. A couple of times I didnít mix up quite enough sealant to finish a session, but I was able to mix up a new batch that was as small as 11 grams. (I was using a scale that measured in grams, so 10 grams of the white stuff and 1 gram of the black stuff gave me the proper ratio.) I used popsicle sticks for mixing and to get the sealant out of the containers.

To cut down on the mess, I ordered some 60 ml syringes from Amazon.com. I never mixed up anywhere near that much sealant at one time, but the large diameter of the syringe made it easy to use a popsicle stick to get the sealant into the syringe. Once you press the plunger, it pushes all the sealant to the pointed end of the syringe, and it comes out in a nice even flow thatís easy to control.

To keep your hands clean, buy lots of disposable gloves! Change them as soon as you notice youíve gotten tank sealant on them, so you donít accidentally get sealant in places where you donít want it to go. Good luck!
