Painted/Fun Tanks

To add some personality and/or fun to my tanks, here are some pics of the tanks I've painted. The first one is a minion pic I found online - the second is my tank, with the blue BCD. I may paint the boot a bluejean blue to match the minion's overalls. I also have a couple others I've painted just to give the dull galvanized tanks some color.

And here's the boot made up as overhalls and the tank after clearcoat

I'll be painting another tank white and I have some black eyes/nose/mouth that is from Jack the pumpkin king that should look good on it. Here is a sample representation of what I hope it looks like - I'll have to make some adjustments for where the strap will go:

I also have a big 90-100cf tank that was an ugly orange that hopefully will be a nice purple with evil minion decals. Here is the Orange Tank, soon to be purple:

Now cleaned up and ready to be primed:

Here is the conversion from cleaned to purple:

And a placeholder of how it should look when done:

The valve of the minion:

These two were tumbled and cleaned and got new pro valves:

And this is my oldest tank. This was one my dad used back in the 60's diving in Lake Michigan with a two hose regulator.
