the more I look at this tank, and the more black BMW's I see the less I want black. The more its keeps telling me to go raw on the tank. with a nice clear coat. the tank is really straight just really ugly paint job. stripped it think it might work. Maybe I'll strip it saturday and see what it looks like. as long as there is no bondo it could be cool . Maybe raw with black pin stripes? is there a way to maybe strip it to raw then have it get a little surface rust and then keep a little rust here and there then clear it? or is rust like the plague and it will destroy it in the long run? even if its very slight and cleared

Also, under the cap should it have rubber? I'll post pics... . aesthetically I think I have to decide which way to go before i invest a ton of money and decide I don't like it.
