Do you have it supported well so it won't flop? ...when the leather bands stretch?
Thank you I think it looks better too , You have a good eye, It's bolted to the frame through the leather but as you say the bands have stretched a bit and the tank has developed a very tiny amount of "flop" it's not enough to make me worry yet but I'm keeping an eye on it. I'm thinking of swapping out the leather for copper bands or steel with leather over that. I'll post pictures if/when I update it.
