Portable Gas Tank ...

I am about to receive a new to me 8 hp Yamaha 4 stroke motor. I have a 6 gal. gas tank that was use with a 2 cycle motor (recently).

Lived in Fort Pierce for 15 years and fished it just about every day> I still got to Fort Pierce and stay on the inlet and fish down there. Like Sebastian Inlet and Fort Pierce over Cocoa ...

As far as rivets go ( keep in mind this is just a hillbi...

Tremclad Painting Question!

No clue if it would blind you or not, sounds like it may be a bit bright. I painted the inside of mine rustolium battleship grey, but it was a rustoleum cream color before that.....Personally I am partial to florescent purple with lime green triangles!
