Changing dirt bike tank color

What about having a upholstery shop make a cover for the tank? Like some fabric/vinyl formed to match the shape of the tank that you just leave on forever?

Looks like a lot of bad results in that thread though. The only "perfect" result was the original poster and he never posted any pictures then sold the bike.
Worth a shot though. I read all 30 or so pages and it sounds like people were catching on to constant heat not heat for 1 hour.
I'll get a metal container (either fab one up or get something from a store) and set it on the BBQ for a good 5 hours of constant insane heat.
First i need to pull the tank and sand all the krylon bubbled paint off and then sand it with a high grit to make it smooth... and apparently hair dryers work for fine scratches.
If this fails i will plaster it with fiberglass resin and paint that. One way or another this tank is changing colors!
