    I then added two layers of polyiso and glued on the epdm liner. I also added weather stripping on the bottom edge of the hinged side of the lid.

    I taped all the seams of the polyiso inside the tank with foil tape. When the liner starts leaking hopefully that will contain some of the mess. The second pic is the foam weather stripping all around the top of the tank.

    Here is the liner in place. I laid the liner out on the floor and prefolded it which worked pretty well. The last pic is the back ledger portion of the lid. Also in the second picture is the two stainless steel 'thwarts' that I lag bolted across the top.

    The lid is held down with turn buckles. I wanted to be able to access the inside of the tank and also be able to take it apart without being destructive. I am hoping the foam weatherstripping, the give in the polyiso, and the pressure applied with the turnbuckles will give me a good seal.

    Thanks guys. I hope you will post your pics Eric, I know I looked at every one I could find before I started on this project.

    It would be great if we could have a sticky with links to all the threads and individual's websites of storage tanks and installations. I know I've spent many an hour doing searches, and I still run across ones that I missed.
