    first job source a new tank for sump. picked up a 16x8x8 for 12 quid at LFS and he threw in some old glss he had gathering dust(perfect for baffles) so out came the glass cutter and silicone. the tank is that good a fit i had to take the door off to fit it in [oops.gif] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    then in with the egg crate, i used a little spot of silicone on the corners to hold it in place

    Your tank is looking good.

    And I really love the fan worm (what a beauty) all I got was white ones.

    Hope your turbos survive - you never know
