Default Re: PVC Fuel Tank

I tried to fabricate a tank out of sheet PVC it was thin stuff about 1/16 or 1/8" and made it with the water proof pvc cement and JB weld. After about a day it started softening and eventually melted though the areas that were coated with the waterproof cement seemed to hold up just fine. I thought about making a tank and coating the inside completely with the waterproof cement (whew it smells) but just eventually got a moped tank. Now I have no worries, it's not exactly like what I want but it's better than the P-nut tank.
Currently no bike but thinking about starting a new build soon.
