Well it was cheap...o wait inexpensive to make and I am using this on a low budget build with left over parts. The pictures show this tank un-painted. I just have this kick with the look of raw metal but I am going to paint it. Something crazy.

Total cost:
Can of V-8 2.99
Brass fittings 5.00
Silver solder 5.00
Billet clamp 10.00
Sheet metal 0.00

The finished product PRICELESS
Nice job on your tank and thanks for complimenting me on mine. Credit for thinking of the idea should go to Rockenstein for his Apple Juice tank a year ago or thereabouts. Since then I've made a number of them and think they make a nice tank.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
