    Beautiful picture. Pine straw is slippery as hell, isn't it!

    So, I've got this old tank, and it sure could use a "prettyup", and the man wants a LARGE chunk to do it HIS way, (without pinstriping!) so I'm going into the body work business! And learn how to pinstripe!
    I've got a frequently used woodshop, heated to a balmy 45 degrees on a warm day, some sandpaper and a can of primer/filler!...:freaky

    What could go wrong???:ear

    Looks magical.
    I would put a coat of wax on it,
    and enjoy it.

    seriously, thats a nice example.
    I wouldn't go messing.

    I have the luxury...
    of this being the original, but hopelessly rotted out tank. The bottom looks like a fine Italian pasta collander....:clap
    I have another, solid, but in the same state of patina.
    This tank will need major surgery to ever function again. In the meantime, I'm gonna learn how to pinstripe, maybe how to paint in the worst conditions possible!:freaky

    So what do I do now?:rofl

    Wet sand it with 400 grit paper then apply a light coat of primer. Then wet sand that with 600 grit, then it should be ready for paint.

    Cant help you with the pin-striping. I tried it years ago and found you need a steady hand to get good results

    What brand of tank is it, and what does it fit? Ugly as a hat full of arseholes, but strangely interesting.

    Looks like the one made by some US comany back east that did a run of fiberglass tanks... apparently using plumbing parts for the fuel tap attachments

    The picture was taken at the Rhinebeck AMCA meet. I think David Siegler (Emerson Motor Works) was offering it...
