Default Re: Fuel tanks

one thing i have read by using hydroforming as an art form,using a porto-power hydraulic pump.with water.just drain it and replace the oil when done.
now depending on the amount of pressure used,it can be safe to create desired shapes to be welded together to create a fuel tank.
beating something to death with a hammer doesent stretch or weaken it?
or how about welding it?
grinding doesent make thin spots?
in comparison to the supplied china girl fuel tanks,hand fabricated tanks cant be worse than that,unless you soldered soup cans together.hang on,i think that was done and better than a china tank.
if it wasnt for cheesy backyard engineering,we would all be walking and killing our food with a stick.

i was a backyard mechanic long before i was a licenced one.
