Cleaning 20 years worth of grime from 90 gallon tank and hardware

I scored a free 90 gallon tank, filter, and pumps. But, it had been sitting in a warehouse for 20 years. This took all darn day.

Pretty thorough job with the cleanup. The squeegee was a nice touch.
Did you end up finding caps for the open holes on the under gravel filter plates?
