    Glass Lifting Prob!

    Just came to mind that I don't know how the hell I'm going to lift these 600lb sheets of glass! when I want to put the tank together. They delivered the glass using those suction cup thingys. Any ideas people on how to go about doing this?

    If I remember correctly you got most of your glass locally...could you not see if they will lend or rent the suction cups for couple days. If so, I'm sure you could get volunteers to help you lift the tank...no beer before the tank is in place!

    if not go to Speedy glass or any glass shop for that matter...explain what your doing and maybe leave somthing valuable until you bring em back. oh yea, and tell em how much glass you got and maybe they'll think you'll be a repeat customer and be more than happy to loan them to you =)
