here we go, tank is in the house now. There was a casualty though, the bottom rim split right at the seam, small split, not something to concerning to me, I will take a piece of strap tie and epoxy it across. I now know which side of the tank will be the rear lol. My guess was that the heat / cold contraction caused it to split right there.
Here are a few pics of the complete setup now. I just need the next week and a half and its go time.
