Well, Merry Christmas everyone. I had to do the family thing for a few days and make the trek to lovely
to spend the holidays with my wife’s family. It is nice to have a break for a few days, but I do miss being in the shop. Bellevue, Iowa
I did get a chance to make some progress on the gas tank. I have is pretty much finished up with the exception of a little bit of welding and getting the inside coated with a gas tank lining.
I like to get the tank lined for several reasons. First off, I do not trust the capability of my welds in keeping the gas from leaking. Also, the lining aides in preventing the inside of the tank from rusting. I have used several different types of tanking lining that are available from companies such as Eastwood with good success but the one thing that has bothered me with the DIY versions is the smell of the chemical concoction. So, the last several tanks I have built, I have found that local radiator shops are more than capable and usually more than willing to perform this service for not much more that it cost to buy the stuff over the interwebs.
