Sinclair oil storage tank w/DINO
Posted by chocho willy on Monday, August 21, 2017 4:44 PM

This a 9" PVC plug that I added 1/8" brass tubing to and put cotter pins in then soldered them in, taped the bottoms with 4/40 die and screwed into the top of the pvc cap that I also threaded. The stairs are plastruct that I cut out one side so that they would bend arount the pvc cap. Installed piano wire through the eyelets of the cotter pins and soldered where necessary. Liked the Sinclair decals with the sayin of " mellowed for 80 million years ". Rememebered as a kid of a Sinclair gas station in Pa that had a Dino on the front of the station that you had to walk through to get to the inside, so I added the Dino just for fun ( jockulairty ) as it maybe. Lot of fun to build and the Grand Kids love it. Click on the lings below to view,,

The first two contain an address error. Clicking on the first pic I get a "Not Found" statement. In the address bar I removed the '/./' from the end of the address and I get the pic of the tank with the Dino. Nice pic. Second address, no matter what I get nothing. Third comes up just nice.

smcgill: Pintrest is a public forum for open sharing of pix. I've shared many of my pix and both members and non-members have viewed with no problem. It is a free site, no dues or membership fees. When looking at a mass grouping of pix there are some advert pix that show up about the related search. When I look at the collections of people I 'follow' or they 'follow' me there are no adverts. If you are on Facebook or Google Plus you already have a page of your own, it's just empty.
