Adventures in Tank Renovation

Recommended Posts

So ive decided that its time to get round to fixing up this tank, so started off by removing the old silicone which was scarily easy to remove that i generally didnt even need a razor to cut it out, it was also an extremely thin bead all the way round so i have no idea how the previous owner had water in this without it bursting. Anyway after clearing out all the old silicone i went round with Acetone and cleaned up all the seams, now going to tape up with a 1cm gap on both sides so it can put a decent seam on it. Tho the only problem i seem to have at the moment its removing the top braket as it has about half a tube of silicon holding it down which is proving pretty difficult to dig out, never saw a tank with a euro brace and 2 braces across the middle before but i ghuess it adds to the overall strength of the tank. I'll keep you all posted as i go along.
