Well Ive sent him some pictures and dimensions of the underside and hes working out what will work - hes a sound chap from talking to him   hes talking about £200 but it won't look like a standard one so we are trying to keep it tucked up out of sight. Thanks for the tip mate

you use the arc welder on that? bless ya. your lucky it didn't need a roof! i've seen some right messes. it just wants paneling about a bit and a skim of clag. it will look mint mate, everyone will be looking at your new tank not your wobbly back panel.

funny reading that now ian - I put it 99% right this morning by adding 2 crimps into the return lip and a bit of bending and farting about and its sorted. Jim got back to me and hes doing me a wedge shaped beauty to follow the line of the lower rear quarters no less    ...for less than what it costs to have an old steel tank reconditioned/coated. 3 weeks turn around but you can't rush this work i spose  
Oh, and Arc welder    nah     its just that these ebay panels are like flippin kitkat wrappers - THIN a fagpapers. good side is they are lighter i spose   i was welding that at 25a, trying to be neat but i tend to be slow when trying for neatness and ...boink.
