prep for painting bottom and back black (if no sand is used or sand removed) and you can see the tiny overflow i made for the hob pickup/heater/ground probe, and micro topoff switch (very tight fit for it all but wanted it all hidden) overflow teeth are long as water level is 3/4" below the rim for possible wavemaker upgrade in future.
