    Hi Pete

    There use to be a gavalnised one kicking about unused in the yard at Orchardleigh, might be worth giving Neil a ring if the gyps have not had it.

    Try a scrappy. Commercials that is. You want the high top off a long wheel base tranny. Fibreglass so no value to them. We used to give them away for raft races. Failing that get 4 sheets ply and 2 lengths 6x2' two for floor make the square then set the other two sheets at an angle against the wall or posts. Then line with heavy plastic sheet in bath and up the boards. Dip and stand up the slope to drain back into tank. It is how we painted picket fence panels worked a treat. Jim

    Pete, Why not use a long trough, put less liquid in & turn the panels?

    Take two IBC's. Cut the top and one side off each. Insert one inside the other with an overlap of 6inch and sillycone the seal.

    Forgot to say you use a pump to circulate the creosote over the panels.....or fill the IBC's with 2000lts

    Sounds like you may also have luck buying a bust canoe from the Scouts & chopping the top off
