Finally got around to fixing and restoring my Big Ten Gas Tank.Getting all the supplies around to fix someones mistake...Someone thought it was smart to silicon patch the hole? Rusted behind it so I cleaned the whole thing up and patched it with solder

Nice work! I've had great luck with solder holding up on similar tank repairs. My pin holes are always on the bottom though.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
