Yeh the fuel tank had to be painted cause it had so many holes in the dam thing it was like a pepper pot and the divider inside it had rotted away
so I cut out the bottom and rebuilt it ive triad to paint it like the engine its a shit Browne colour the truck is the same but the light in the picture makes it look black ile get some other pics in better light and you will see, that's the on trouble when painting trucks and tanks, just didn't want to paint engine thou.Smile

you could have painted it red oxide, would have looked that bit nicer than black that's my personal opinion anyway
