Took a time out from body work to fab a tank. I'm the wiring guy at Buckshot Racing, I can get by in the fabrication, lathe, and mig department. I have tig welded before but not to do something as important as a fuel tank so the welding is handled by the shop welder.
I didn't want anything on my dash but wanted to keep the reserve function so I deleted the knob and cables and made a cap/knob for the reserve.

This is my first time working with carbon fiber so I used it in a spot that will be painted over.
Filled in the dash
Smoothed out the bond line with cabosil
Filled in the tray hump/dip
Blended the inside of the rocker to hull

Base for right side sponson done
Pattern made for left side sponson. Left side base also done.
Both sides of hull cf reinforced
UFO's glassed in
Bilge sprayed
I got a little thin in some spots on the rocker so I added one layer of cf. It overlaps where the rocker meets the hull. Far from perfect but for my first time and for being on the bottom of the ski its's perfect enough
