Had to take another approach at this tank Sad .Metal started spliting on first attempt. Mad
[img]Metal work IMG_3661[/img]
Access when shaping and working on welds is important to think about. scratch
Quite abit different than original tank.But it will do.

Started on a tank.Not sure what bike to put on but needed to get out of my head Razz .
[img]Metal work Photo-4[/img]
Wire buck.
[img]Metal work Photo-6[/img]
Made a pattern using duct tape.Was gona try make top out of two pieces but found to much stretching so making out of four.
[img]Metal work Photo-8[/img]
First piece
[img]Metal work Photo-7[/img]
Four pieces was a good idea. Twisted Evil Only took bout 2 1/2 hrs to do and still got plenty thick ness in panels for metal finishing.

with aluminium how do you do your welded joins-
flat cut edge butted and welded?
folded edge butted together and welded?
overlapped and welded?
