You may want to search the forum there a lot of threads on HOB vs Drilled
Nice clean setup good job.
PS resale on a drilled tank is higher than a non drilled, given a choice i'd drill

If you are going the way you have it hooked up, I would shorten the hose from the overflow to the sump. The straighter you can make it the better. Other than that it looks good!
