Moved to tank decided to take it back to bare copper, see what it looks like, got rid of most of the paint after hours of sanding and probably breathing lead based dust :roll: . Then :idea: I'll put it on the motor and have a look before spending the rest of the night sanding, done.

My first Seagull was an LLS with a brass tank. It was the bare brass tank that lead me to buy it!

My everyday gull (yeah right!) is an AD with bare brass round tank.

Go brass 8)
