Here Iím painting the inside of the tank.  The fumes are pretty nasty, but I was ok with my mask on.  I only mixed half the tin and half the hardener so I can apply another coat once its welded together. 

It says on the tin you should apply 4 coats for underwater use, but its going to have to make do with 2.  I just applied this really thick and sloshed it around. 

I should have masked off the bits at the end where I didn't want any paint for the weld. Not sure why I didnít and Iíll just have to clean it up a bit before I join it together. 

Once its fitted together, I will mix the other half of the tin and pour it in to cover the weld and unpainted bit.
