Mod 500 Fuel Tank

Has anyone ever seen the fuel tank on the Diablo 500 painted white from Bolens.
I swear mine was originally white but I'm doing a repair that require a repaint.
Thanks Chris

I have never seen a Diablo gas tank painted white. And believe me, I've seen A LOT of Diablo gas tanks! :o
Too many Diablos and parts to count.

It may be a primer sealer under the paint, I have found that on many automotive paint jobs.
