Again Mr. Pete (Monopoli Marine) comes thru! He provided me with a tank, the Pump, the aluminum to make the stand As well as many other bits (Cables, fittings ) He and I decided on what you see in the Pic. Typically I would have thought it thru more thoroughlly and used cad to draw up some sort of stand. but this was the throw it together version. All aluminum 4 Cast/Urethane casters.  Below are the pics. Though, Its not done yet. I have assembled and dis-assembled this thing more times than I can remember. With still many more iterations to come.
Once you see Paint? Suggestions welcome! That will be the last time. Color is still up in the air. Ill post some pics of it empty just before paint.
