Ya it's not easy sourcing materials. Sounds like some good progress though. Goodluck sealing the glass.

Glass install complete. Took 4 people to carry the bigger if the two 3/4" thick pieces of glass. Not too much trouble sealing it with the scs1200 silicone. Used a caulking edge tool to make the seams look more presentable.

Please excuse my ghetto rig to hold the side glass up lol

Glass in place and tank is turned upright/moved into its final position ( took 5 people).
Up next is plumbing and finishing the painting. Picked up most of the PVC fittings, currently waiting for the bulkheads before drilling.
