    Why u gotta bring up old stuff? LOL.

    Life really has been hectic. And I had some financial tragedy. My AC unit died. Sucked up all my savings and maxed my visa. It was 112 degrees when it went out. My truck needed new tires so there went a grand. Blah blah blah.

    But in reality money for the tank has not been the issue. Time has. And my time has gone to working to pay for all that crap. It's been rough. I have most of what I need to finish already though so it's not like I gotta spend a lot more on it.

    But mostly the work I need to do takes place in my garage/shop and it's been a hundred plus degrees in there so, well, f-that. Things cool of here in Arizona at the end of October and I'll be back at it soon. This weekend I'm in Reno Nevada though. Jeep/rock crawler championships.

    Oh Ok, I just wasn't sure if there was something more specific about having air in there. Definitely interesting. I'll be starting on a background next week, so maybe I'll try adding one Click here to enlarge

    Bump. So, I've been working my tail off at work. Got a little raise and then had to run point on quite a few "projects" that are outside the scope of my job but well within my skill set. I built this recently for our showroom.Click here to enlarge

    And I'm again motivated to finish my tank. A major block I've had (besides life/work) is that I never sorted out and bought the internal lights to light up the caves. Well I ordered those.

    My summer tour is much lighter than my winter months and I'm anxious to finish this thing. I'm gonna clear out a space to work in the garage this weekend so I can revive this build.

    Sorry for the delay. I suck lol

    You don't suck. The best part of DIY is the process--figuring out what you want, how to build it, and then actually building it.

    That is progress, it takes time to create such a realistic patina...
