GMC body leak test

I've seen others do a leak test by pressurizing the interior body and then using soap spray to find leaks. We have a windshield leak that happens when driving in rain. Hopefully now that I think I found it and sealed it it won't leak at least there.

Brass thread insets in FRP tank flanges

 1/4-20 inserts for the valve flange, 8-32 for the sender flange. Sandblasted the inserts to get them real clean.
 West Epoxy instructions say bowl wax can be used for non stick coating on threaded fasteners. Harvey no-seep wax ring was only $1.48.
Hope this works out.
