Decided to get rid if the flip top from this old honda tank.
Looked like hell inside, but I had already soaked it in lacquer thinner for a few days to get rid of the varnish, and then Evaporust to get rid of any of that nonsense...
So it was just a matter of a little cleanup with some brake clean and a long handled nylon brush.
Emptied and dried, ready for welding
Hour or so later... still has some metal finishing to be done, couple suspect spots I will touch up in case of pin holes, then I will pressure check it before it goes for paint.
Final cap will be just like this, but black. I forgot to bring it out to the garage with me, so this one is hijacked from my dad's bike temporarily.
