Thanks for the suggestion - I did have a search for that but I thought that it would be tricky to blend all the angles in and still get the lines straight. At least I could have a go with the paper and see how I get on first!

While I mention it, I managed another 90 minutes in the garage to get the whole of the tank sanded in 180 grit. It's starting to look the part now and I can't wait to get the chance to finish it in the 240. Here are a few progress pictures (you can see some crossed lines in there but the 240 will get these out):
