Actually you know what-it was a propane heater [laugh]. Used the grill tank. Duh!someguy said:Propane is better for the work you're doing. Know that cloud of nice black smoke those kerosene heaters make when you start 'em? It's not helpful to paint adhesion.
When sanding filler, etc, remember to use your sense of touch, not your eyes to see if it's really smooth.
My sense of touch is pretty keen. I've always been very artistic and done things with my hands, so their ability to pick up imperfections is pretty keen. Relying on sight for this project is tough anyway, because the tank is so many different shades of red and the filler is yet another color. It fools with your eyes, which is another reason why I want to prime the whole tank. It's much easier to see low spots when everything is the same color.
