OMC Portable 6 gal Tank Bottom Molding

Postby gypsmjim » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:05 pm

Back in the day OMC made a while rubber molding that could be fitted to the bottom of their 3 and 6 gal metal tanks. I had one on every tank I owned. I'm restoring an old tank and need a new one. They were used to keep the tank from scratching the deck.

Anyone have a part number that I could search, or even provide the proper terminology for the part?

My dad built cars for a hobby in the 30s and 40s and windlace was a term he used to use for a certian body trim molding.

I used to use this stuff but many people have found it to trap water and rust the tank. If I were to use it now I would just put a few short pieces at the corners.

Good Idea. I have a rubber mat that I put the tank on.

I just applied another similar product (sold as "truck and van door trim") to one of my tanks. I think I'll drain it this winter, clean up the rim and give it a good couple coats of paint before I put the protector back on.

For years we used a rubber mat and while it protected the bottom of the boat (fiberglass) it always trapped water and grunge under it
