    A plastic tote will work, but since they are a bit weak for that much heavy liquid you might consider building a frame from 2x4's and plywood to reinforce it. Then you won't need to worry so much about it bowing out and breaking open. It'll still be an inexpensive tank.

    Avoid nylon at all costs in the acid tank (will disolve and make a mess of your parts), but the polyethylene is fine for electrolyte.

    I'm interested in this too - I am going to use 15 gal tanks, but the material seems to be an issue. I have been told that you shouldn't use polyethylene (high or low density), only polypropylene or PVC. Anyone have any comments on this?

    The LCD kit will give you all the components you want. Just get a 20 gal Tote/Keeper box from KMart and use that for the tank. Make up the solution with more battery acid and distilled water.

    ?¿tank and part size for anodizing¿?

    Iv been powder coating with good results for a few months and would like to add some anodized parts to my projects. well the LCD kit comes with 5 gallon tanks that would be good for small parts but from reading around in this forum it seems the parts must be at least 2"-3" away from the plates.

    so i guess one of my questions i have is mostly everything that i would want to dip is taller or wider then the tanks offered in the LCD kit. ( valve covers, intake manifolds, brake calipers ) stuff like that. So does the parts have to be totally covered in the mixes or could the dipping be complete in half's at a time?
