Lucky me. Yesterday was perfect for painting the tank outdoors.
Stripped the tank to bare metal using a combination of paint strippers, acetone, heat gun, scraper, wire brush and sand paper. PHEW!!
Sanded all the rusty spots on the tank and painted over with a anti-rust coat. Then primered over that.
Now for the paint. SInce I am going to cover it with stickers anyway, I painted it black. Also because thats the only color I had lying around.
Now to let it sit a day or two before I begin sticker bombing it. Couldnt find a better place to hang it too..
