Had to take another approach at this tank Sad .Metal started spliting on first attempt. Mad

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 .

Wire buck.

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][/img]
First piece

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?
