Tanked up: Learning to make aluminum fuel tanks with Tab Classics | Hagerty Media

At Twr Gwyn Bach, a small cottage workshop in mid Wales, three highly skilled craftspeople turn an apparently humble twenty-quid sheet of aluminum alloy into a beautiful work of art. Welcome to TAB II Classics, where engineering meets sculpture, and handmade fuel tanks are crafted.

Beautiful work, truly art.
Unlike most art which just hangs on the wall and does nothing, this has a practical purpose and can be used.
I envy the people who have the ability to create such work.

I love to watch people make stuff like this. It's functional art. Rolling art once the wheels get put on.

Beautiful, fast-disappearing craftsmanship, and presumably not for the ethanol-laced, agribusiness-welfare tree-hugger crap that has passed for fuel in the U.S. for the past 4 decades.
