Also brought new toy.... MG A 1962 MKII, needs a little work to it, but overall its perfect British car for this Brit!! More of this little car soon....

Well weekend was meant to be an easy cleaning day, but after taking my tanks out from my air ride setup to check and do cleaning of pipes underneath tanks and do general check of everything, I noticed something not right with one of my tanks.

Tanks out, 4 nuts and 4 air lines to disconnect and out they both come!


Closer look at tank

Paint is bubbled up at end of tank, about 5'' x 1'' in size




So worried I pulled the paint off


Closer look and there is one spot that has raised up metal with white around it


Then I found a second bubble, this one is tiny, again pulled the paint and same on this, metal raised up


I will be taking the tanks back to the company this week who painted them for me, weirdly 1 year ago this week...

So much for simple cleaning day!

was asked about MG, so here is better pic for you all



1962 MGA, full restore in 2002, total mileage as of this weekend 00779, yep 5 miles a month only over the last 14 years, very, very long story on why but such an awesome car.
