What follows is the pictorial story showing 3 and 1/2 years of part time work to fully repair my front float tank. This tank was fitted to the Red Weasel my friend and I imported from Duluth Michigan in 2007. The corrosion and damage to the tank was typical of most flotation tanks found nowadays.

As the telemarketers would say, 'But wait, there's more' 🙂

The upper mounting brackets (tank top to hull) were modified in the past using an oxy/act torch. Also the sheet metal behind the brackets had corroded as well. The pictures best describe the repairs. The blue length of RHS tube visible in some pictures was added to give more rigidity to that panel.

Just got home from a 1500km round trip to pick up my track aprons and front float tank. My panel beater offsider has worked his magic on them and now they look a million dollars. Next job is to rub them down and get some OD on them.
