    Still coming. I've been doing a lot of thinking about how to approach my tank before I start cutting metal. I think I have it figured out, so should show some progress soon.

    Corrugations running horizontally would be more streamlined looking.

    I agree. I've just been working out how to make the tank dimensional instead of just flat panels.

    This name change was quite the education for me. I always thought she said "Henry's Restin'" :21:

    Think you should try the corrugations both ways to see what you like best. Vertical with the corrugations perpendicular to the straight bar might be interesting.

    Had to knock the new off my tires. Did a light scrub first with simple green. Rinsed and into the pool. 002.JPG 003.JPG
    I'll soak overnight and see what I've got.

    The Black Lagoon? I'm interested in seeing the result.
    Have you used this method on white walls on this forum before?

    Tire results inconclusive. I wiped them down and agitated the solution. Back in the pool. 001.JPG
    Crappy pic. May be darkening up some.

    Wipe em down with a dirty, oil/grease stained rag that you used for cleaning something.

    I can "patina" a set of whitewalls by just installing them. LOL
