I especially like the creative use of duct tape and tie down straps on this one. And is that oil tank a fire extinguisher?!?

C'mon man, mine is hammer bronze rattlecan! Nothing flaky about it! Cleared metal would be cool but a silver patina would be way cool! I've been kickin this idea around for awhile, doing my sheetmetal in a silver scallop and black oxide patina. It looks like it would be durable enough to last at least as long as your average paint job. http://www.sculptnouveau.com/coatings.html

What do ya think?
P.S. Don't tell anyone about this place, Larry
