How I make an aluminium motorcycle petrol tank (gas tank) & other alloy metalwork.
Full length video of how I make an alloy petrol tank and other sheet metal
work including panel-beating & oxy-acetylene welding. Excuse abrupt edits.
Other tips:- always use a mask when welding to protect from fumes. Use a
lint-free cloth for polishing. Make sure tank is rubber-mounted to prevent
fatigue cracks. A large tank may need baffles. When tapping the little
low-spots when panel-beating, there is no need to rest it against the
block; that was only so the camera could see it. Hope this is of interest
and help to the DIYer. Sorry but as I have retired and not in perfect
health, I don't want to undertake any jobs. Cheers anyway. Pete.

Refinishing 3 Piece Wheels - Polishing Lips
Video Series Info:
Part 1 (Splitting the Wheels): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXqWTXvsWJ8
Part 2 (Polishing the Lips): Your Watching It
Part 3 (Polishing the Bolts): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUi-E7yP02s
Part 4 (Assembly): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7FqNluXsY4
So in this video I show you how to polish the lip on your three piece
wheel. This technique can be used on essentially all aluminum surfaces
though, including the centers of your wheel, or any aluminum part on your
car that you would want polished :)
For the sanding, you can't cheat by using an electric sander, you need to
have a nice grain and an electric sander is not going to cut it.
For the polishing, you need something with a high rpm as well as a nice
amount of torque, hence the angle grinder. A drill will not put out as much
rpm nor will it have enough torque and strength to keep going for hours on
And as for the main steps in the process:
Strip to bare metal
Wet sand with either medium and fine sanding blocks or
220,320,420,600,800,1000,1500,2000 grit wet sandpaper
Use the denim buffing wheel with the brown Tripoli compound, do two runs,
wipe clean with acetone/paint thinner
Use the cotton sewn wheel with the white rouge compound, do two runs, wipe
clean with acetone/paint thinner
Buff out your awesomeness using Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish
Now if you want to know what I used here is the list of the main
Polishing Compound Set:

**To fit the buffing wheels listed on the grinder listed:**
All I did was widen the hole of the buffing wheel with an X-Acto / hobby
knife, by cutting some of the material, until it was wide enough to the
point where I could thread the wheel onto the grinder. It's takes about 10
minutes to do and makes for a cost effective setup.
