Re: Reclaimed from the junkyard!
Good restoration work. It's what the old guys used to do before chemical tank sealer came along. I hope it lasts you years. It should.
Just curious. Did you find that tank as Steele's? They're just off South Santa Fe in Englewood. I've bought several tanks from them. They usually don't keep real rusty ones and all their tanks are in pretty good shape. They have hundreds to choose from in their attic warehouse. They're a little pricy but $30. would get you a nice tank. A Yamaha MX 80 is a good choice. Last time I was there they had four of them.
I wish I'd known you were looking for one. I have a Baja tank looking for a home. No rust, no leaks.
