I lived across the street from a retired flattrack racer as a kid. His old race bike had nearly every technique presented in this post on it's tank. He always said the guy that painted it was a little loopy because he never wore a respirator.

I learned a lot of cool stuff from guy. I wish I still knew how to find him so I could thank him.
