    So the adventure begins with the sump.
    The supplies

    Lines so I can get it reasonably straight.

    As much as I can do without making a real mess of it.

    The water is for smoothing the silicone where reachable.
    I sealed the right baffle first the left baffle next and the center last.
    You will notice on the center baffle I was not worried about the Russian judges deducting style points.

    The right most section is for my skimmer, an Eshopps PSK-150.
    The center will be for a six inch DSB and the left will be the return section.

    Not a bad start on the sump. It took about an hour to get to this point and I wasn't really rushing it. Tomorrow I will add the last baffle.

    I tried posting them from my album hoping it would work the same way. But my hopes were dashed. I'll add to first post shortly.

    Yup, will complete it tomorrow. Gotta get high on the silicone curing fumes before I complete it.
