RandomlySet : 2018 - The year silent videos made a comeback

Little Bacchus : Bet your friend loved it. My heart sank when the wire broke, all I was thinking was 'at least it's just the primer, at least it's just the primer'

Murilo Goulart : AGAIN: no silly commentaries, no annoying music, no stupid explanations. All is there, in our eyes, even your thoughts according to new circumstances and so on ... A pair of hands (1 discreetly tattooed) and, using your own words GREAT ... this is the real restoration. Applause

MirceaD28 : My mouth dropped like that tank also when it got loose.

Brian Burke : Incredible work. I cringed when the tank fell. One suggestion. Have you ever used plastic razor blades? Imo, they're a safer alternative to steel when peeling off the stencils on that pristine paint. No chance of scratching it. Cheers.

PBJPRODUCTIONSTUDIOS : I appreciate your honesty that you left that tank dropping footage in and admitted you got extra dents , you could have easily edited that bit out and made it look like nothing happened you are a genuine guy !

Marcel's Workshop : You can’t Chrome, yet. Yet is the key word.

Matthew H : Therapeutic to watch ... I enjoy the no music .. no talking crap . Video does the talking , great work . Felt the pain when the tank dropped lol . Keep up the resto work bro 👍🏻👍🏻

Hand Tool Rescue : Nice body...work ;)

Nicolás Pérez : Great vid! I would pay to see your face when the tank fall from the hanger... Shit happens and the fact that you have showed it us, makes you even bigger!!!

Cleate Rose : Loved that he showed the drop. That's so me.

Brains Ironically : Post a 12-minute vid... three minutes later it has one thumb down. How does that even happen? Somebody needs to be banned for that crap. Unless they came from the future! Great vid. That yellow will certainly be visible at a long distance! :)

Gavin Lewis : Who are the 115 idiots that disliked this video? Thanks for amazing content!

Fuentes : That’s why I have a huge yoga mat on my paint shop room

Addicted to Projects : Love your work man! Really impressed by how thorough you are, and your attention to detail. I am wondering whether you are learning to become a paint sprayer/panel beater? Or are you just doing it for fun? I have a comment to make, but I don't want it to be seen as something negative. Please see it as something constructive, to remember in the future, when you're working on other tanks; You should always pressure test fuel tanks after you have welded them. I test mine to between 5-10 psi, depending on the model of fuel tank. The sturdier the tank, the higher you can go. Some pin-holes will only show up at higher pressures, so you definitely want to go as high as you dare without warping the tank. My experience is that MIG definitely leaves pin holes. I would recommend TIG or Brazing with silicone-bronze, as that flows nicely into all tiny holes. Lastly, if you cannot TIG or Braze, use a tank sealer, that would go on the inside of the tank. That will take care of any pinholes that may be left. You can also use JB Weld (slow curing) to plug holes. I have successfully used that on two motorcycle fuel tanks and on an engine oil sump. Neither of which failed after years of use! Good luck and keep the projects coming :)

Nilesh Thakur : Beautiful job.

Jonathan Vinces : Im your fan Men!!!

Ranjan Mukerjee : All your subscribers from India are probably loving this restoration!

FeedTheOcelot : Is it weird that I really liked the look of it with the stencil on better than the black letters ? 🙃

John Parker : I could literally watch you refinish stuff all day long. I love your work and your attention to detail is on point. Thank you so much for posting (especially the problems that drop in).

Jack Complains : Little bit of eggshell, orange peel texture going on perhaps below the top clear coat. Really bugs me because of the vibrant yellow. It still looks great in many ways just couldn't resist pointing that out

Ben Mall : Really beautiful work. I'm curious as to why you didn't fill the brand plate holes, since you painted on the logo. Is the owner planning on adding something there? Whatever the case, that's a great paint job.

Dragon69Fly : Rofl couldn't stop laughing when tank drops on the ground, that look and comment 5 dents extra, I thought that s... onley happends to me.

Λογος : That drop added a lot of tension!

sujit choudhari : I own a Royal Enfield and its also in yellow color and this restoration bought me into tears of joy I don't know why.

FliesLikeABrick : When welding fuel containers or pressure vessels that may have combustible residue, it is always a good idea to fill it with water to force vapors and hydrocarbons out. This way you have some more insurance that, while welding, you aren't flashing hydrocarbons on the inside metal surface to vapor which can be ignited and explode during welding.

Adam Slater : You need to master your painting. I went to college myself and learnt.. your 99% there it's just your gun techniques. The clear coat wrecked it.. I love your channel btw.. get a small gas heater/diesel to warm that shed up.. your passes are like your spraying out of a tin rather than a gun.

pondafarr : BOING! Boing! boing! Happens to all of us :P Well done otherwise :P

Sunil Kumar Pandey : You are awesome man

Afromancer : Woooo! Finally early to a video! Screw those ASMR videos, this is much better! Keep up the good work, now I just need to find some rusty thing in my garage to restore

PAULO FERNANDO : You gave new life to that old tank. Congratulations from Brazil

Akshay Seth : Paint job is outstanding

Ahmad Msarwe : You are the BEST 😍

bee1978 : LOL. Everyone and anyone is now doing these restore vids. they bring in huge viewing figures and potential good income

Steven Watson : Great work! When the tank fell that even made me swear, good thing it was on the primer stage and not the final clear coat. Looks fantastic now though! Cheers

carguy uk : I had to laugh when the tank fell on the floor. That's what would happen to me if I was doing this job! Great video and end result looks perfect.

SparkyGage : Since you can't chrome yet, you should keep the old cap as a souvenir. Love the finished product and the videos!

Acuic : When you were peeling off the tape i thought you had a small dot of black paint on that beautiful yellow, but i was happy to notice it was just a small dot of crap on my screen :) nice work!

Günter Jibben : Video-Thumbnail... 1. Pic... Kiwi. / 2. Pic... Lemon 😂

Abdilrahman Aljamali : How do people restore stuff? Is there a school for that? school of life ?

Malik Nomi : 😍😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

Attila Went : Good Job! Where are you from?

S_400 MIG. B.L.R : Бак упал, не беда!)

Carsten Andersen : Very beautiful result, thank you for sharing your amazing story. God bless you and your family

LifeOfPaolo : Hey man. Really great work but just a FYI. When sanding body filler use a sanding block. Often times when sanding with only your hand, you can leave high and low spots from your fingers.

Sharif Sircar : I am really sorry! When I saw that tank dropped I literally start laughing out loud, I could imagine the "that's just great" feeling you were having at that moment 😂😂

Mad Mechanics : Please post some e30 stuff

Blizzi ¿ : Würden sie auch Aufträge ausführen z.B ich würde Ihnen einen Tank schiken und sie würden ihn reparieren?

CleavingCleaver : try as you might, you'll never get a smooth, flat result from sanding with a piece of sandpaper in your hands. get a few flexible and hard blocks to help out!! love the channel!

Nick TheWIze : Add a fine layer of black spray paint over the primer to act as a guide coat. When the black is gone you know that the entire thing is sanded.
