    So i just got a kayfun mini and sticker, and id like to be able to use a 16mm mod on the sticker with the poly tank. But it does not fit.
    Is there any way to warp or make an indentation on the tank? Mybe a heat gun or a torch? Idk

    anyone have any ideas? Or try anything like this?

    The first thing I would do personally, is see what all can be done with the material...i.e. like watch videos or read material on poly... etc. I don't know if it's possible to modify the tank the way you describe, but from my experience with welding/heating materials, I would imagine heating the tank would certainly change the aesthetics and possibly the properties of the tank (like make it really brittle for example.) Let us know what you find out. In the absence of material to research on the internet, you could go get some cheap tanks and try to mod them the way you describe.

    On another note, if you do heat the tank and it flows good enough to make a dent in it, it could change the dimensions of the threads making it worthless so you might have better luck modding it while its all screwed together.

    Good Luck!
