Thanks for your guidance.

All welded up including filler neck and half coupler for outlet. Leak check next and then final polish.

Just for fun Jeff try another (or just a portion that gave you the most trouble) and see how many pieces you can drop off with your new skills.

All tools are a hammer except the chisel.....That's a screwdriver.

Great work, Jeff, that looks as professional as anyone could wish for and I'm delighted to have helped a little.
As Jere suggests, next time you make one of those you'll tap it out of one piece and wonder what all the fuss was about :-)
In return you seem to have coaxed me out of retirement and I now have a little project on the go, which I will share in due course.

Thanks for all your help. Before I tackle another tank or even part of one I think I'll do the front fender in aluminum. The stock one is steel and now that I have an aluminum tank and rear fender it would look funny with a painted front fender .

Yes, it could be a be a while before I get there. We have a house project coming that will put the motorcycle project on the back burner for a while.
