‘‘Twas a big day. Didn’t blow nothing up, got ‘er opened and upright again.
Stack hole was the virgin cut. Easy peasy.
Doors layed out and cut cut, the corners remain though. I’ll cut those tomorrow mebbe and finish the straps. Didn’t wanna warp em being in a hurry, I put quite a bit of heat and stress on that tank today.
Cleaned a bunch of unsightly tabs and brackets off.
Hinges made and on. Getting somewhereView attachment 71636View attachment 71637View attachment 71638
