Wow, it's funny, I was going to ask yesterday how much extra space you had to compensate for the sealer when you carved it. That is very frustrating, I feel for you.

Well I had about 1/4 inch on each side but got to much sealer on either side. I did some sanding and trimming. Should be all good now. Just waiting for the repainted areas to cure again.

Glass brace is in place and the silicone is curing, first coat of paint is on the stand. Next silicone the trim on the tank, wait for that to cure them prep the trim to be painted. Going to be a loping night, pass the red bull please.
