    Default Painting Your Tanks?

    I got a oxygen tank from a garage sale a few months back. Big tank, nice but ugly as heck. For some reason, the guy thought i would be nice if it was yellow, but I'm not into that....Since this isn't a rental, I want to repaint it. what is the best way? Sand it down, wire wheel with the grinder or chemical gel paint romover like naval jelly? Any ideas or things that might NOT be good?
    thanks in advance

    painting a tank is a no-no, most places wont fill a freshly painted tank. they make you get it certified again.
    thanks for the help

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    I agree with Weld_13. If you paint it they'll wonder why sometimes? Damage, repairs, etc. Have them fill it once and then tell them your going to paint it so it's all on the up and up. It's their a** on the line if they fill a bad tank and something happens.
