    Gas tank turned out so well that my girlfriend let me use it as a table centerpiece (for now).

    Is that professionally done, well obviously so. But are you the professional who did it or did you send it out to be done?

    Professionally done by an amateur :). I stripped it, filled, sanded, primed and base coated. I had to collaborate with a buddy to do the color coat since I don't have a paint gun setup (yet). I know it's colorrite paint but I don't know the exact color. I got the paint from a local collision shop that had some leftover after a job that they were going to throw away.

    Very nice, as long as she doesn't put flowers in the gas filler, ha ha. Excellent job (nice color too) I must say.
    Cheers, 50gary.

    If you keep up this good work you and your girlfriend will not have any room to sit and eat at the table.
