    @looch definitely not  dude. Im redoing it again .as im not to happy with it. Its the first time i have dipped anything, so im learning as i go. 
    Im also changing the center strip to black carbon fibre  as i think it will look better.

    Its my motorcycle,  im doing a memorial bobber  in honour of my son who i lost in a fatal motorcycle crash two years ago. Powys was my heart and soul. 
    Once i have trained with aqaugraphix uk which are down the road to  me. 
    I would love to do some dipping for friends and take it from there. 

    Nice to speak to you  looch

    Training @AquaGraphix will be the best investment you will make in this business...

    You may want to wrap the tank with a foam board insulation that helps hold heat in

    Will look into adding some insulation, great idea.

    Also, get some of that foil tape to cover the exposed edges of the foam board. The activator over spray will eat right through any exposed styrofoam.

    Cheers @NotSoFast . I didn't even think of that .

    We got the boards for the top as a lid and then some foil type bubble wrap to wrap around the outside of the tank. Its been brilliant.
