This is really not important I was just wondering if there's a law at work here, like Murphy's Law, and what it's called. I've been struck by it twice in the last couple of months -- first with a set of seats and now with a gas tank.
I've spent the last three nights sweating over an old gas tank, carving some kind of rubber material off the bottom to check out a big ding. I mean, I've really put my back into it -- cleaning that stuff off is tough! So I was just outside about to start sanding the thing down when a friend drops by and tells me he's found an abandoned '67. We go to see it, it's trashed, but the tank is PERFECT! Twenty minutes later it's in the pick up, and now I'm staring at the other tank in my drive wondering whether it was all worth while!
And the moral of this tale is ???

There is a Santa!!!! At least you didn't have to sand it!!! That is the worst job ever. Now you can just add it to your collection of stang parts and put your new one in!!

How does this sound, I run up to pep boys and buy a nice silver color paint along with a nice clear coat. I get home and spend HOURS using a wire wheel and a DA sander to get all the crud off my gas tank.... well a little over 2 hours and I'm done! So I start wipeing it down so I can paint it, and then I see it! a pin hole!!!!!!!!!!!! So I purge the tank and try welding it, yeah right! wayyyyyyyy to thin! But the funny thing is that the tank had no rust and no rust on the inside of it, But I looked inside it and saw another small pin hole! All that work for NOTHING!
