Hi I've been lurking for a while and yesterday I started my build. 80 gal air tank got real cheap. 2 2x10 1/4 sheets for $50 and the rest I have around. I've got my fb done and ready to cut door in cc tomorrow. Now to see if I can upload pics!

Crew,

Looking good so far, welcome to the forum.  I'm not sure how your tank is built, but mine has a welded seam at the bottom.  I decided to put that weld up top at about 11 o'clock [away from the door opening].  I didn't want to cut through it and it gave me a bit more material up top to (slight overlap) to attach hinges to.  Also my tank is very old and the bottom was pitted / rusted.

And BTW thanks to Alaska as mine will be very similar to his.
You are more than welcome but I must admit if copyright were an issue I would be in deep DooDoo. I have pestered so many folks on the forum with my questions and to my surprise I still have all of their support still. Mother Nature has thrown me a curve ball amounting to -28 but I'm still slinging sparks.

Post Photos I'm peeping on a daily basis.
