Default 28 Skater tank job

I finished up the tanks in my 28 and decided to do a few minor mods, cap job, hatch re-hang and some other cute stuff.
I had never shot gel cote before, but with some internet time, some information an a little help from friends, it is complete and sealed in PVA as we speak.
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, now some block sanding and color.

"Yessir" I did. I installed aluminum tanks in my own mounting system. Thanks for the kudos.

When your done be sure to get some of these flush mount twist snaps from Tyson ( BigYellowCat).
Way nicer than having them stick up. Just replaced all 5 on 30 with them today.

A "few minor mods"? Errrr?

Geez, I am such a rookie.

Are you going all white, or do you have paint over gel?

I have a color scheme, the bottom up to the first hard line will be white gel, from there up will be paint. Basically the gel provides a super hard and flat base for a good paint job.
Rookies become pros with practice, I'm still practicing. ;-)
