And uhhh.... if that sentence seemed a bit off it's cause I just sat here for the past 5 hours reading all 700+ posts.

Hey that was my dad! No just kidding; God it must suck at first aid now. Well the project looks awesome, I hope that 'WildRose' gets a good spin. Gratz.

Edit: You should learn to fish out lead, thanks to those gangs.

The tank is in the bathtub...wash time , wow it's filthy.

Even got a nice corrosion line on the backplate , quite possibly galvanic in nature :



Won't be an issue when it's full of alcohol.....
----

-Once the tank is outta the tub , it's harsh solvent/razor blade time.

-All the pipes are being scrubbed and assembled into thier final forms.

Fat kid ? .... Pipe down guacamole boy !

The ETA was set a month ago.I just wanted to pass some tests first , you saw one of em.

-------

The Thinktank Revision 2 will first operate in early august.....got some travel plans to finalize etc before a hard date is confirmed.

Technically we could run it in 2 days if we threw safety out the window , but I aint gonna do that.

-------

The 'tank has undergone a transformation.

After a comprehensive 5-solvent-wash ;

Clean machine.It's ready for a computer....

If my selective memory serves correctly, there will be a live video feed instead of a youtube video for us folks hanging on without plane ticket monies...

Just to clarify:

1. The start-up will happen during my 4-weeks vacation.
2. She-who-must-be-obeyed is the REAL Boss. She's already aware of this trip out West, and I have a green light.
