A high build auto primer should fill the pinholes
Im going to check tomorrow for a high end auto primer. I did another test using plain rust-oleum auto primer and it didn't really take. It dried well but it can be scratched off easily.

After more than a year it's time to bring this thread back from the dead. After taking some time off from building Ghostbusters related props I'm diving back in with the slime blower.
First I got a hold of another 9 inch post cover for the main tank.
Image

I then got the measurements for the main tank then started my cutting.
Image

Cutting the second piece.
Image

Taped them together to see if anything needs to be adjusted.
Image

Then I had to figure out how to secure both ends together. I cut six, 8 inch long pieces of steel and drilled them out to be pop riveted in place once I figured out my placement.
Image

The holes were drilled into the plastic and then the rivets were sunk in.
Image

The steel plates are now in place inside the first piece.
Image
Image

Joining both ends together.
Image

One of the post covers was about 1/4 wider then the other so after both ends were joined I had some over hang that had to be cut. I will go into detail on this in my next post.

I was just wondering how you were going to attach the two parts of the main tank. Nicely done!
