Fitting it into place, had to leave for work so tomorrow I have to trim off a few inches off the front of the frame of the reel then go a little higher then make mounts for the reel.

Well the reel is in, I also have the plumbing done from grey tank to black & black tank to reel, when I install the mercerating toilet I'll plumb in with a Y fitting into the line from grey to black & install a check valve so waste doesn't back flow into grey tank. Next step is build the control panel.

Love the retro plate. These are actually easier to see than the new ones, at least in the daytime.

Finally, got some work done,since my black tank is mounted behind my right rear wheels I realized a plastic tank just wasn't going to cut it so I took a 112 gal fuel tank cut it in half long ways then trimmed another 3 in off the top half, welded in a 1 1/2in pipe for attaching the mercerating pump then welded on a 1/4in plate for the bottom. Got it mounted up almost looks like it was meant to be there.
Tank measures 60" x 20"x 7". I'm thinking about 30 to 33 gal capacity??

36.36 gallons if it's a perfect rectangle. Since the top and bottom are rounded it will be somewhat less so your 30-33 guesstimate is probably about right.

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.
