    Funny enough I did have one for sale but decided to keep it in the end for another project.

    For now until I can get a good used one local very cheap its being used as a buffer tank for my pressure washer in the van. I tried it laying flat but took up too much floor space so decided to mount it on its side instead.

    I'm not bothered with doing anything with the lid or making any extra holes in the side (now the top) as I only fill it half full as will be getting another upright tank anway.

    [​IMG][​IMG]well ive took the lid off an ive come up trumps i think as the hole in the tank if flat so i can seal it up more easy an i can cut a new hole in the top an seal the lid in nce an snug need to find some thick plastic to seal the old hole ill use bolts with lock nuts an some evo stick to seal it on the out side ill use marine paint so the bolts wont rust ill also seal it frm the inside to stop it leaking an puting to mch pressure on the outer bolted plate wat do u guys think will it all go pair shaped:eek: or can i pull it off lol:thumbsup::cool::D
