Talking 33gallon long (with 55g sump!)

So i went to the lfs on sunday and low and behold they had a 33l in the store. I saw it and had to have it so being the poor college student i am, i bought it. I got it drilled that afternoon from another lfs (not taking a chance on a brand new $100 tank). When i got it home, i was looking at the stand for my old 55g and realized how much that stand is not sump-able. So being the DIY type, i googled a dual 55g stand and went to home depot today and got the materials (had them cut it too, which they forgot to charge me for). So my living room looks like a lumber yard atm, i have a bunch of pvc fixtures in my storage closet, and i still need to figure out a cover for the front of the stand that will be removable. Looking to make this a very sleek looking tank.
