The straps should follow the contour of the tank and mount (with 1/4" bolts) to the flange of the frame--cheap insurance
thanks Trunt, i will use some stapping

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

thanks for the tank calculations guys, once i find out for sure i will let everyone know


my second tank im going to use for a for black shows as being 59.5x12x10. when i calculate that one on the on-line calculator from Nat_ster it give me around 140 gallons, and i know that isn't correct. I'm going to try some aquarium calculators.

59.5 x 12 x 10 = 7140 cu in divide by 1728 (1 cu ft) = 4.1319 cu ft x 7.48 (gal per cu ft) = 30.9 gallons = Roger Nat

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

installed my RV range hood and duct today. now i just need to straighten it out a little, run power to it, then finish this cabinet and all the rest of them. i first measured a hole, cut through from the inside then drilled out from all 4 corners, went outside, attached the lines with a sharpie, then added some space for the actual size of the outside duct then used a dremmel. a little silicone caulk and some #8 self tapping sheet metal screws worked well.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Turned out great, I have always wondered...every time I see that wall....what are you doing for back splash?

Every time I open the thread, I can't wait to see....it's still not done
