I doubt that I will ever edit in all 50 pages of pictures. I might go through it and put a few of the high points in. Depends on if admin here wants 50 pages of pictures on their server.

I have had some health issues and have gotten even slower on the hobby build.

Still working on that gas tank.
Making the bottom.

The storm is about an 8 hour highway drive to the east of me.
The one that hit TX was about the same distance to the west of me

The other tank (The black one) was hand made also. I did learn some on that one and expect this one to be better. After welding I closed it up tight and air pressure it 5-10 lbs and wet it down. Find pin holes and weld. Then repeat. Eventually no more leaks. Then epoxy tank sealer.

The main thing I learned the first time is to prep the metal before putting it in place or welding.
Grinding decreasing and sandblasting it first then the welds come out nice and no pin holes.
