Going medieval on a gas tank?

Finally getting all the rust out of a tank?

Making a larger capacity tank?

All three! I'm going to weld flat, straight pieces of steel to it to create a hard-edged tank.

Trifecta! What did I win?

"hard-edged" Ooo, sounds dangerous. I created a concave-top tank with my tailbone once. Reduced fuel capacity by about a quart.

I have no interest in shaping metal, that's why it'll be all straight and hard-edged. I saw a coffin tank picture floating around, it'll be similar in design. Just not as morbid...
