39 tank deal

This is the oil tank for one of the 39s that we are doing this batch. Some body had the bright idea to remove the back part of the oil tank. and move the feed line location. This really only gives us two choices. I could either weld the rear corner on, or cut off this top and weld it to another tank

I chose to weld it to another tank, this enables me to get the tank spotless and clean before welding the top back on.
HEre it is all straightend out and ready to go onto another tank.

This is what it looks like welded on and the welds rough ground. I have some touch up spots to do still and pressure test it. It is a great feeling to make something out of nothing.
