Wish I'd have thought of lead... Makes a lot more sense, duh. I've had the honor of being the asbestos point man for our office in the past, which required asbestos schooling, which basically says, if it's not glass, metal, or wood, it has asbestos in it unless tested and proven otherwise. Lead was a much better choice for this gag though...

-Red, glad to be done with asbestos...

Stealing aluminum tanks is evil.

Letting them leak and burn your trailer down is stupid.

The rest is up to you--you own them.

BTW, I think they look good.

I hope the paint isn't flammable (or is that inflammable)...



How will you deal with keeping them shiny when road grimed? Inquiring minds...

Fully painted top and bottom.

Flammable when wet, mostly inert when dry.

The particular paint is pretty durable, and it is also relatively inexpensive for when the road takes its inevitable toll.

Is it Evil to Paint Aluminum Tanks ?

It is my understanding that newer paint uses titanium in place of lead.

Meaning, the gray paint I took off of those cylinders (they were already painted when I got them) was maybe a hazard, but I wont have to worry about the red paint till they deem titanium a hazard.

However, I am desperately concerned about the CO2 emissions of my furnace, water heater, and my pets and family.

Waiting for the coming cease and desist order, it is for the good of everyone don't you know.

You don't plan on eating the paint someday do you?

I will have to admit that on occasion when paint lays down really pretty it does look good enough to eat...

If they're exposed to the sun, don't. Black will absorb heat more than lighter colors, which is why bare metal or white painted cylinders are by far the most common cylinder colors. In high summer, you can expect your pressure relief valve of a black-painted cylinder to get more of a workout on a full cylinder as the heat absorbed by the black-painted metal is in turn absorbed by the liquid propane inside, which will vaporize as it's heated, thus raising the vapor pressure. Painting a propane cylinder black or any dark color is mainly a way to waste propane.

If the cylinders are under a cover, it won't matter as much, because the cover will block the sunlight and prevent some of the heat transfer.

My black one pound cylinders have never blown the pressure relief... Nor the dark green ones.

Ooh ooh, I think we've found the next ST vs LT debate.

I guess you can do with the tanks as you like. They are yours. You could have sold the aluminum ones and painted some cheaper steel ones. Anyway, that red will knock 'em dead somewhere....
