Very cool - hadn't thought of swapping the drive over to the other side.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

I think I like the new tank better, but the first was cool as hell too, you didn't pull a brad and smash it with a hammer did you? If not someone would likely want to buy it.

Nice work.

Very different.  I like.  How did you even do that panel work? It is hard to tell from the pics.  Is that just a bead?  It looks great.

That is some bad ass work right there Junior. The details in that second tank are amazing. What's the final vision for the tins? Polished or painted?

Not sure at this point,there will be raised areas inside the panels though. I like to build piece by piece and let it come to me as I go when i'm building for myself.
