    Hi all, well Mrs Couch has been on her own today, but have to say in between the usual stuff and a pile of ironing, she's been busy with the paint brushes; the inside nice and white, and the first coat of black gloss to the front of the stand.....

    hopefully the stand will be finished by the weekend ! Going to sort out the bits tomorrow to sort out the afore mentioned electrical problems, then finish off the painting of the cabinet. Once all that's done we can get on with ordering the tank itself :clap:

    Bye for now Big Thumbs Up

    Hysterical I know he's a bit of a stump Hysterical

    i wanted to go 30 high but with our surround sound system it would mean a lot of hassle with wires etc so I measured and I think I can go 28" high and only have to move a speaker
    don't Think i have got any chance of going 28" high mr stump :w00t: sorry couch is having none of it

    Thanks Lesa xxxx

    Why you getting surround sound on the tank? People try and keep them quiet. If the speakers above it, where is the surge tank going?
