I was skeptical when I first got it. It looked pretty dodgy out if the tank. Lol

I've cleaned up the switches and stuff on the front. They where caked in dust and grime. That's about it. going to start gutting it Saturday if time permits.

We bought paint for the inside and started designing the false bottom to bring the tank up to the right level. Not very exciting but, hey, it's an update
