Kreem is a good product if you know how to apply it correctly.

However, I always prefer to repair a cracked tank the proper way, and that is to weld the crack or replace the tank if it's material failure.

The welds around the back tabs suck balls as well. They look good, just cheapo chinese stuff.

hey guys... Kreem is only for plastic or fiberglass tanks... use red-cote on metal...

however.. I'm also of the opinion that outside > in is the best way to go...

I have had six Kikker tanks... All six were spaced and attached correctly. All six leaks around the back tabs. Would have been alot smarter to have made a strap that came up into the tunnel and back down like a real tank normally does instead od those cheap ass welds onto the bottom of that flimsy metal.

The kikker tanks are soooo thin. I welded mine first and sealed the inside second. Kreeme is not good to use on tanks. Red kote or caswellplating sealer. Both are great and dont break down. Just my .02 cents
