That's inspiring! The only reason I used the Kreem instead of brazing in the first place is that a friend got a random package with a bunch of motorcycle shit in it (clutch levers, motocross boots, Kreem, etc.) that he didn't order and so he gave it to me.

It's my understanding that the only good way to get gas resistance when repainting a tank is to powdercoat it; is that the case? I've never painted a tank before
