Aad's Tank, part 2



First Aad is making the tank into 1 piece, later we will cut an opening to access the battery, fuelpump, coil etcetera. Once again the tank is pieced together making cardboard templates and tracing them onto sheetmetal. The pieces are cut out roughly with an angle grinder with a very thin disc, then each piece is beltsanded to the right size.
A hammer and beaterbag are used to shape the pieces, we use birdshot in the bag by the way. As you can see in the last picture some parts of the existing tank were so thin they will need to be cut out and replaced, that can be expected using a 27 year old tank as a basis, definitely NOT made in Taiwan though!
