Thanks! Yeah, my hands were freezing by the end... It didn't help that the hose water was freezing either. 😂

My goodness... Has it been a long time OR WHAT!? This project is starting back up! I'll probably start a different thread after a finish the stand since this is already 5 pages long...

But today I'll be finishing the rebracing and resealing of the 55 gallon. Being 25 years old, it's always good to recondition old plastic and seals.

I'm about 5/8 done with the trim since I already removing the bottom. The seals have already been removed. This will cost about $33.
