I'll be sure to send you pictures when it's finished.
Smooth it and paint it?
I was thinking more of building a 'get her glowing hot' fire in the smoking chamber and burning out anything that may have permeated the metal.
I sort of cringed when I saw the tank already had a coat of white, I don't know what paint was used but most will start smelling when they get hot. And outgassing paint (and body filler) might not be the healthiest thing to have around the food.
I may be worrying about nothing, but if I were you/he I would give it a good, hard, way hot test run before taking it anywhere.
