The tank was first sand blasted to remove the tired paint and graphics. Damaged areas were heated and dents were removed with shaped rods and compressed air. Minor dents were then filled with plastic body filler. The whole tank was then hand flatted and sprayed with two coats of 2K primer. This was then hand flatted and first sprayed silver and then translucent red to achieve the candy finish. This was then sprayed with two coats of clear and the graphics added. Two more coats of clear completed the job.
