OUCH!!! Sleazeville is not the greatest posting ever. Did a cycle through JRTC years ago, the highlight was staying in vintage WWII barracks with out AC. One thing about Joes we're resourceful I am certain you will find a way to make it work out!

well finally got around and finished this tank…took about 2 days to sand and polish…I already put the bulkhead fittings and tested it with water and so far everything is good to go no leak…I already have a background for this and planning on patching and covering the overflow with the background.
