    Hot water, Surfex HD, a handful of rice.

    Fill the HT up about 1/4 of the way with Surfex/water at 10:1 is fine. Chuck in a handful or two of rice and shake like hell. It will clean up the inside quick smart. I feel I should point out that you need to remove the rice before it gets soft or you put the tank back onto the car

    Surfex will clean the outside up well too. Surfex then steam would be ace i would think.

    I definitely recommend cleaning out your old header tanks. Prices for new ones have sky rocketed in the last year. Some people have bought up the remaining stock and are now selling them for 100+
