That would make a nice tank and could take a whole frame easy. I have found that for parts that have complex shapes you will sometimes have to make up a temporary anode and suspend it so that you can get current flowing in hard to get at areas. It is line of sight, so if the anode can't see a hidden part of the frame then the rust and paint will not come off. Let us know how it works out for you. I find it's a big work saver as long as you aren't in too big a hurry because it seems to work best if left to cook for 24hrs.

Would definitely be a good tank to use, not real high and a lot of water area which will help eliminate some of the line of sight effects. I am switching our anodes from rebar to flat stock steel on the next redo of the rebar cage. Will make cleaning off the anodes a lot easier.

Nice looking tank. Will you have to reinforce the long sides so they don't bulge out?

no i should not have to reinforce the tank it is built to hold water with the sides already reinforced with half round cardboard and sprayed with fiberglass

You could pretty near use that for a swimming pool. 280 gallons! lol You'll probably need a good sized charger for best results.
