Great job ! Can't even imagine the hours you put into those projects but the results are awesome. Looks like a future presentationn to me.

Joe

You really should think about doing a presentation for the TBAS and other clubs. If you could show how to polish etched glass you will have people "eating out of your hands" there are many tanks given away due to being etched. I agree with Bil this would be a great presentation and you could be the first one doing it.

OK computer geeks - I click on the link which takes me to the fish addicts site where it asks me to login or register. I then select register and nothing happens ! What am I doing wrong ?

Merry Christmas to all,

Dave.

Yes, you should be able to view the site without registering. The site even lets you see the pictures as a guest.

Now for the embarrassment, I am going to the store (right now) to buy office so I can get powerpoint. I've never used it but I figure if my kids can use it, and Chuck Davis can use it, I'm within the age range of people that can manipulate it properly. I'm one of those dinosaurs that is better at using a saw than a computer. Maybe once I get something done I can send it to Mike of Bill or anyone that is computer savvy to be sure it will work properly. I'd hate to show up, press a button, and "nothing" happens.

Well Joe did put together a power point presentation and gave us a great education on repairing and making etched and ugly looking tanks look new . Thanks for the insights . Know it wont be as easy for us newbies to tank restoration but at least we have an idea on how to proceed . Sharpie and Soft scrub are on the to buy list .
Thanks again Joe .
