Well I forgot to glue in the top brace, so I did that tonight. It was not as bad as I thought it was gonna be. I also installed one of the overflow tanks. I am including some pics, although they are a little dark so I may take some more tommorow with the sunlight and post them too.... Will get the other overflow installed tommorrow after work.

A few more pics. I was short of all the neccesary clamps, but made due with what I had as you can see.

Leak Test

Here are a few more pics. Have one small problem and one potential problem. First the small one. There is an ever so slight leak from the inside of the tank into the overflow box.. This is no big deal since it goes down to the filter and there will be a stand pipe anyway. The other problem is that there seems to be what looks like a scratch or possible crack on the bottom glass.. I ran my finger nail on over it and I dont feel anything catching and with my finger up against the glass and looking at it from an angle, it looks like its on the other side of the glass. I'm gonna let it sit for 24 hours and then check for leaks, drain it and then look at that "hopefully" scratch...

Nice job! But.....I notice it has a glass centerbrace, which is good, but what about the rest of the trim? Usually tanks that don't have the top plastic trim to hold the sides together are Euro-braced. What is going to hold the sides from blowing out?
