Wanting a more generic tanker. I pulled one of my Speedway trailers apart and stripped it down.

The main tank of the trailer it actually metal. So I soaked off the decals and red paint in some pine-sol, then sanded it with fine sandpaper before polishing it with metal polish.

It isn’t perfect, because the tank was never intended to be polished. Though someone with more patience than me could probably sand & polish it to a mirror finish.

I’m stoked with how this came out. And am trying to decide if I want to do the other trailer as well.
