kubiak was into fabricating his own parts, and custom made most of the tanks that are in his pictures. Always had something cool that he was cooking up.

If I remember right, he welded nuts to the tank to mount the shrouds. The dudes' got style, skills and tools- all in mass quantity.

Just make sure that the tank has no fuel or vapors in it. I sent my BMW tank to a body shop to have some dents pulled out and the guy BLEW up the tank. Didn't even open the gas cap. The stud gun he was using almost took his head off.

I of course got to buy a replacement tank as he was doing me a FAVOR!!!

I have done welding repairs to gas tanks before. I just rinse them for about 30 minutes and then fill them with water and leave the cap off. every once in a while ill get a small poof but so far i still have all the skin on my face.

There was natural selection at work. How many times will he do that again?

yea i got the poof out of the cap a few times too lol! i learned to clean the tank out better. i use dishwashing soap now and slosh it around and dump it and do it all over a few more times then if i cant smell any fuel its about ready to weld, i also do a quick flash with my torch in the cap with my safety goggles on just to be sure.

Isn't this the Darwin Effect??

He published his theory with compelling evidence for evolution in his 1859 book On the Origin of Species, overcoming scientific rejection of earlier concepts of transmutation of species.[1][2] By the 1870s the scientific community and much of the general public accepted evolution as a fact. However, many favoured competing explanations and it was not until the emergence of the modern evolutionary synthesis from the 1930s to the 1950s that a broad consensus developed that natural selection was the basic mechanism of evolution.[3][4] In modified form, Darwin's scientific discovery is the unifying theory of the life sciences, explaining the diversity of life.[
