Very nice. I will be following along for the ride on this one.
One tip about the Drylok. I have not used it yet, but on all the reptile forums I am part of, everyone says that if it is going to be constantly wet, it should be covered in something that will waterproof it further. Having said that, may I suggest a layer of clear silicone after you paint it all? Just a thought. Now enough of my rambling and inexperienced tips. ON WITH THE BUILD!
