well, its a very exacting & precise procedure, to invert the outward radii of the curve in such a way to give the maximum amount of steering with the minimal intrusion of the tank, as to not compromise the structural integrity of it.


so I'll probably put a piece of pipe against it, & smack it with a big fuckin hammer.
