6. Carbon-fiber Tank for Flat-tracker


So a flat-track tank like this is $300. Oh you want it in carbon? That’s an extra $200. So then we get it from the supplier, and it looked like it had been run in the mud. Then it was about another $400 to get it sanded down, cleared, get the bubbles out, get it finished off. I’d sold it to the guy on the project with the idea, ‘this’ll be so trick because we won’t have to spend money painting it!’ – but of course we wound up spending like a thousand dollars on it. But isn’t it beautiful? I love it. I get a woodie looking at carbon. If I see something made out of carbon, I pull out my credit card so fast it, like, turns into plasma. Carbon is the bomb.
