I asked for photos showing the inside of the tank and the seller says he can't do it. He doesn't seem interested. I asked because if the interior rust is significant and does need removal and then a liner installed it is likely that the paint will suffer some damage during that process. Rust removal may result in holes right though that shiny paint. The tank also needs the Yamaha decals applies and the clear coated again. How much of a risk are you willing to take without interior photos?

He sprayed so much paint inside, I don't know how it can continue to rust anymore.

That fact has me thinking this was a rush job to cover damage and then sell it on eBay to someone not asking the right questions.

That way he can claim plausible deniability.

I have a couple RZ500 and RZV500 tanks here I probably will never get round to using, I suppose I should offer them up to folks who really need em.

And then there is this one. The welded area in the bottom is a nice touch.

Do you think it's possible this tank was used on a submarine?

Hi there, new to the group and this is my first ever post. I just bought an RZ500 and there is a bit of surface rust in the tank so I bought an endoscope that has a 9mm head and works with my iPhone so I can check inside when it arrives from Amazon. The RZ500 tank on eBay is about an hours drive from me so maybe I will ask him if it's ok for me to go up and look inside the tank with the endoscope.

The seller has no intention of providing any useful information.

Who paints a tank BEFORE dealing with internal rust issues? Someone trying to pull a fast one?

Who recommends Kreem? No one.
