    Slow going, but steady progress- Now looking for Opinions- Im thinking of leaving the tank black, with perhap Johnd900's suggestion tday of a thin gold and red pin stripe detail- I have these vintage style Mobil Pegusus decals I think would look very cool- ala vintage motor racing liveries of...
