LMAO! Sounds like an "ACCIDENT" waiting to happen! Jp John you are truly a handy man. I may recruit you in the future for a project or two.

PS I cant wait to see this baby up and running.

You are pretty handy John. I cant believe you are setting up a non-nano. You have betrayed your cause.

OK its getting somewhere. I have the stand done. Just need to mount the doors. I picked up another 250 PFO pendant and a 2x 250 ballast. I will be starting on the canopy tomorrow. This thing will hopefully see some water by the end of the week.

Here was todays project . I got the canopy done, just have to paint it. I left the back open and installed a lip to put a clip on fan if needed.

John, lots of people can make nice stuff, but you seem to have some kind of speed talent. It seems like you pump out projects like a machine.

BTW, we still need to hang out sometime!

Looks good man. You going to get that Powder Brown? I am picking up my Powder Blue Friday! I think the Powder Brown would look great in that tank.

Ok I finally got the canopy painted. I also got the back painted black. Big thanks to Mike Sommers for helping me move this thing around to paint it.
