Here is what the tank looked like when I started
Pulling the dents, light coats of filler and various grit sequences to smooth and straighten the lines of the tank
Picture 1 is just the base color, Picture 2 is with 2 coats of the candy topcoat
Using a clean and strip disc (roloc attachment) to remove the graphics
After 2 coats of high build primer, sanding in between coats, the tank is ready for primer sealer just before the base coat
Ta-Da! The finished tank with graphics and clear. See a professional looking paint job can be done at home. All it takes is patience.
