As per title really, i got a second tank cheap off ebay for a project bike. It's sound but has some proper denta. Just threw on with some p38 on the deepest dent at the front but i'm reckoning it could be over half an inch deep eventually.

Cant really pull it or knock from inside tho :s

Dont have access to welding, spot pinning or even a slide hammer. Pulling it isnt an option unfortunately.

Ive thrown on the first slop, will go on again tomorrow. 2 throws should give me enou build to knock back to shape.

Also, i forgot how fumey it is. Slopped it on the living room coffee table being a clever bks and had to put tank back in garage again. I have now got eyes like sheeps c**ts and can hear colours.
