Got some pics of the tank I yanked from under the jeepsters rear last month. It doesn't seem to be the original, but I could be wrong. The brackets and mounting are MUCH too good to have been done by the PO (idiot). What do you guys think?

That's the original. I have one in better shape I can bring to the Jeepster Jam for swap meet. Or do you need it to get there?

Yeah! I could use a tank....and a set of REAL axles, PS, discs, seats, new leafs, windshield assy., 20'x3"x3" box tube, 4'x8'x18ga. sheetmetal, new brake lines, hard top, front signals, 100' of color-coded wire, 4 rolls of fluxcore wire (to start with), 5gal. of assorted lubes, large fastner assortment, a tailgate, 5gals. of POR15 and oh,...$500 worth of "tune-up" parts. Other than that, it's ready to go (I do have a NEW battery, halogen headlights, and plugs!). The joys of starting with a "partster" (or is it a parkster?)! :-(
You'll all have to wait til next year to view the beauty/beast. BUT, I'm coming anyway, just to see everyone elses cool rigs.

Dave,
Did you ever get your title?
You can restore that tank. I can't even remember the stuff to use right now but if you are going that route, let me know and I'll find what I used.

Yep, Genuine Ford caps with the centers in the front "cut out" with BFH. I can make you a set if you'd like? ;^P

Still don't have a title, the PO assured me he WILL get by Va.DMV and send it out on Friday, June 1st. Guess he lost his calendar along with his integrity.
NC doesn't seem to have the "bond title" option mentioned in SilentBob's post, or does it? I hate to be dishonest about the whole thing , but I'm beginning to lean that way.

The inside of the tank looks great, just the outside needs help. I was thinking of some light media blasting and coating it with some industrial enamel, but let me know what you used incase I'm off on that.

Can anyone tell me how I can clean out the inside of my tank before putting the POR 15 coating inside? It has some dried varnish inside and some light rust.

I had my new Aero hot tanked at the radiator shop after I removed it from the Jeepster so that I could weld on it.
