Default Re: lots of work to do

DaveC gives good advice when it comes to hanging the frame upside down. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to miss places that will be very obvious when you think you're finished.
You might consider a fuel proof paint for the tank. I use TopFlite model airplane clear for my tanks or any part that might come in contact with gasloine. It goes on nice and dries to a high gloss. Gasoline won't effect it. I had a plastic HS tank and used the TopFlite primer before the color coat. It didn't bubble up after painting. Good luck.
