Default My first tank

I just had to try this tank thing cause dads bike just looked too ridiculous with that toy tank on it. I've been welding for well many years and was inspired by this site and some of the stuff you guys come up with. Anyone who does this knows how much work goes into it and so no I won't be making these for fifty bucks and a six pack. Never mind my dismay when he did a no sealer no primer 5 minute paint job and instantly spilled gas on it. I sorta wanted to just kill him then and there.
I have a better idea now and some patterns made and some new clamps that will make this kind of thing easier though never quick. The contour marking was a pita. This is just carbon steel 18ga sheet tig welded. It has too much labor in it to let that paint job fly I'll get that fixed myself.
