New cosmetic mod

Finally figured out what i wanted to do with the dreded tank seam, flange, lip, whatever. I found this textured edge moulding at an automotive upholstery and accesory shop. $6 for 65 inches......

That really finishes the tank edges off and looks great while doing it... might have to try that on the SE.
