Stuff seems amazing, and what I could do and make with it, could eliminate a lot of clamps, nuts and bolts.
I even foresee a new intake pipe being rigged up. Right now I have a copper elbow tube silver soldered, fiberglassed, wired and JB welded offset intake.

Give me a aluminum pipe and a flat piece and the world can be mine!
As is mentioned in later posts, you won't want to use Alumaweld on any load-bearing member. It isn't much stronger than soft aluminum. And if you do use it for anything, practice, practice, practice first. This is important; it can be tempermental to use. I got mine at Harbor Freight. You can also get it online. I'll keep everyone informed as to how well the tank holds up.
