Hydro Dip a gas tank?

Has anyone ever hydro dipped a gas tank? If so any pictures? I think that is the route I am going to go instead of painting it exactly how it was. Any photos would be great. I have seen many videos on YouTube about it and I like the idea. Curious about longevity.

Its come up a few times over the years

I think this is the most recent thread, if you search on hydro dipped you can find more:

doing a tank might be challenging, you would want to dip it top side in first so the bottom side would be the part where it needs to pull in and wrap around.

Since Lesblank keeps riding his MC dressed like the Easter Bunny every year, we should dip his 1100 to look like an Easter Egg.
