Ive got some tank sealer on the way but what can i use on the outside Jb weld? Quick steel? Im starting to lose my cool on this tank and dont want to smash it lol..A buddy told me to use some fiberglass resin stuff but dont know if that would work. Any ideas here? Thanks[IMG]
There's an outfit named " Coyote Gear" which manufactures spun aluminum tanks for a variety of applications....the smallest they make is a one gallon which I believe would be perfect for you....I've enclosed the site.....hope this helps....
