So I got a little done today. Was on the road for most of the morning so I didn't get through everything planned. I managed to clean up the edges of the doors and cut and weld on the seals. Started marking and planning out the grate slides.

Here's a couple pics of today's activities:

Cleaning up:


You can see how thick this tank is...


Cutting the steel (just think this was a cool shot. )


Took a little break with some pepper shrimps and a beer:




Back to work grinding:


All clamped up for tacking:


And this is what we ended up with today. Not a bad start...




Hopefully I get a chance to get a little more done tomorrow.

Thanks for looking.
Cheers.

I made one out of that same tank. Took some tweaking here and there. It's trailer mounted now.

With this type of tank, do you still need to do a burn out first?

Can't speak about Phrasty's tank but mine was full of crud. Oil, rust, dirt, you name it. Not a pleasant cleaning job.

Looks sweet. Makes me want to brush up on my welding skill and tackle a project like this myself.

I think about a similar build every time I see a Propane tank or Air tank.
My problem is it's just too big just to use on my patio...
I'd have to build mine on a trailer to carry to parties.

Yea I'm gonna burn it out... Even if it's just to try burn off some of the paint.

Hey guys... Got through what I wanted to today . I managed to cut and install the grate slides and make the racks... The racks were a bit labor intensive... Wanted to go a little above and beyond the regular expanded metal grates. I made these out of 1/4" bar stock! Came out nice. Really liking where this is going. This is what happened today.

First thing I did was to install the slides:


Cleaned up the welds:


Then cut the 3/4" sq bar for the grates and tested fitted them before the next step:


Here's where all the work really came in. First I marked out the long rails to start drilling the holes for the 1/4 bars and center punched them:


Then started drilling:




Then came the time to cut the 84 1/4 bars for the grate and welded the frame together and installed the bars. Still have to tack them in, I'm guessing I can do that sometime in the week:




A close up of the grates:


And here's where we are now...






So far so good guys! Thanks for looking! Hopefully some more updates soon!

Cheers
