    Are you sure it’s not a rain gutter?

    Rewind me about 6-8 years and I would have taken it. If it was glass I'd be on it (as long as there wasn't damage), but acrylic ... I just can't do the constant maintenance to keep it clean.

    The size of it is fairly epic, 30" wide is more than enough IMO, the 36" tall makes it an instant focal point (even if it takes a bit of planning to light), and the 8' long is what you need for those tang fiesta parties.

    Out of curiosity where in San Bruno? One of the many Asian restaurants along San Mateo Ave? Or someone's personal tank?

    Van needs transmission work, not big issue but $$ tight this month to take it to the shop... tempting, very tempting.
    Second is where to store it... Saw it in pieces?
    That material has to be heavy at 1”

    You’d have to change your screen name if you got it.

    I see teamwork in the making here. :)
    We got storage, van and manpower, just gotta find the time.
    Definitely not chopping.
