Why did you not spray paint it?

The stuff I used came recommended by the local steam railway enthusiasts. They were painting steam engines with it. It goes on thick and sort of self levelled a bit. It was pretty quick drying. I got it off eBay from a company in Ireland. They said it was cellulose based and was mixed specifically for bush painting. I went for this paint because it was petrol proof and I was using it on the tank. This was the stuff, see link below.

Yep I use cellulose. I have a good stock of spray cans in primer and black. Also some tins and a spray gun.

Yes cellulose is petrol proof. I would give the petrol tank a couple of spray coats of cellulose clear lacquer to finish and to go over any transfers.

I was recommended Valspar paint many years ago (probably about 1970). and hand painted a BSA B25 and couple of Norton Atlases Petrol tanks in white and that was OK.  :)
