Just started this but i have very little time at home to work on it, so sorry wont be alot of updates to it just yet. I will be on vacation in january so hopefully Ill get a bit more accomplished. I was going to try the hardiboard drylok thing like tfg, but as the time gets closer I am having second thoughts. I think I want to go with epoxy instead. This will have either 2x4 or 4x4 bracing all around it and i need to know what to use for epoxy. I would like to use the sweetwater, 3 coats white, 3 coats black. Is it ok to use the paint alone if it is fully framed in? I have never worked with glass matts befor and dont know if its really necessary. I dont want to mess up laying glass matts, and waisting epoxy. Will it be ok using paint alone then silliconing all seams. How long will the paint last? Tank size is 80"x40"X40"
