    Dolphin

    painted cylinder protection

    My local scuba shops didn't have any good ideas - I bet this board does.

    I dive a Dolphin and the Drager 4 liter cylinders are steel with a paint coating. The paint chips easily and needs something to protect it.

    You can buy a number of tank coverings for standard sized scuba cylinders, but so far I have not found an off the shelf option for smaller pony bottles and the Drager cylinders.

    The best I can come up with is to buy a plastic mesh covering meant to fit an aluminum 80 and then get busy with a knife and monofiliment line to sew it back together.

    Anyone know of a better option?

    You can buy smaller dia mesh- it's used by pneumatic and hydraulic cylinder suppliers to protect them during delivery.
