    You might try riveting two wallboard putty pans together. You can get them at Harbor Freight or any big box building supply. Seal the ends with high temp silicone. The rivets are garden variety rivets from the hardware store. Worked OK for me. (The AK laying beside the tanks is just to give an idea of size. It is paint over park.)

    Does the parkerizing affect the chrome in the bore or do you block the bore?

    Chrome isn't affected by the process.

    My tank is 4.5"x4.5"x42" and I usually fill it with 2.5 gallons. I'd count on getting at least 3 gallons and a 4-5 gallon buck with a lid to store it in. I have also seen where someone was storing it in a plastic gas can and that might be the way to go as it has a pour spout. I'd mark it and never use it for gas again though.

    Great Idea on the wall board putty pans...


    Can you use a spot welder to combine the stainless wallboard putty pans together? Seems like it might be a little faster. Just not sure if you can spot weld stainless.

    If you dunk parts in acteone for degrease, after sandblasting, but immediately before parking tank, do you still need to dunk the parts in hot water? I was thinking of buying the shooters solution zinc parking concentrate, ( don't need the degreaser and would like to use used motor oil for post parking treatment) does anyone have any sample of what teh outcome looks like?
