Thanks! So far so good, no cracks or leaks, but it has only been about a week. *After* I built the tank, I then read that the ethanol in our gas can soften the JB Weld, so we will see how she holds up. There are no ethanol free gas stations nearby, so I might have to go hunt down some near the lake... The holes that I made for the fittings were made a little small on purpose so I could thread the fittings in, so there is not a lot of actual gas/JB contact.

I am going to treat myself to a nice torch for my birthday, so the next tank will be soldered.
