Damn Tape Residue

Just bought myself a nice little Ninja 50/45 born 07/12 for backup...
Fast shipment from seller, excited to open the box, and found this..

Searched for some info on PB, couldn't find much. Decided to roll up the sleeves and 5 minutes later (and a home remedy)..

I got this....So glad to have that damn residue off, why does everyone put tape on their tanks? It's not THAT much to just go out and get a little butt cover, minus the fact that they're on backorder at ANS right now.

Oh and should I be concerned about this? Found a little chip in the bottom of the tank.

Not enough to worry about. You may want to take some epoxy and put over it just to add some sort of protection to the exposed carbon.

Don't know what you ended up using but WD40 usually does the trick on stuff like that also.

Ah WD40, I bet that would work pretty well also, I'll keep that in mind if I ever come across this situation again..

if you contact ninja, you can get the tank re-coated. just have to remove the reg and send the tank in. they should give you a RMA#.

Do NOT use WD40 or anything like that, only warm water and some elbow grease in the future. Many products contain caustic/solvent chemicals in varying degrees that can eat away/damage the gel coating. Anything aerosol based for instant is extremely harmful, oil based products are a major safety issue if they penetrate the regulator as they can cause combustion.
Also do NOT apply anything to the damaged section of gel coating. Contact Ninja as JoJo specified if it concerns you. However, the black lacquer coating is just a cosmetic coating. The real coating is the clear coating you see underneath so the fibers are not infact exposed as previously stated.
