Why not just attach em to the post? There's a "how to" somewhere.

Oh yeah... the helpful link about attaching photos: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...tml#post612569

Mind if I merge this to your 'Here I go!' thread -- kinda the same theme.

Holey Moley! What a mess - your surprise further convinces me not to pull up my flooring. I think I'd have a heart attack right there on the spot if I found such a mess.....

Wishing you lots of luck and hope there aren't any more surprises - though it looks like most everything else that might cause you problems is already GONE! Cheers.

Laura

Very nice. There is more satisfaction in covering it back up when its been improved than what you felt tearing that nasty stuff out - keep focused!

A project timeline with a weekly dry erase board for notes and things to flag comes in handy!

Covering it back up is definitely my objective. IDK about a timeline cause I am budgeting my way thru the project ... lets take the floor for example.

replacement steel: (WHEW)

My Original price for the steel was $1154 (thats not delivered, they wont deliver to a residence.) So I went to work on a cheaper solution.

heres what I ended up with:

5x2 11ga rectangle tube main beams $300
5x2 16ga C channel cross members and outriggers $280

thank goodness I weld...

more pix: The front after i started to drop the belly wow that steel was rotten


Yesterday I got out 2 of the 3 tanks and they look ok .... I will get out the other this weekend and water test.
