    Hello all, I have moved into my new house. I built the studio wall with no problems and did 99% of the darkroom set up and plumbing no sweat. I decided to build a sink to fit my Jobo processor instead of spending the $ on a ready made. I used exterior plywood, built a basic tub, painted it with epoxy paint, plumbed it and shazam, I have a sink. Well the epoxy paint cracked ever so slightly and it was slowwly leaking. I went to Home Depot got some fiberglass, thinking it would be quick and easy. After almost killing myself with fumes and a few halucinations later I decided to do something else. I got concrete waterproofing sealer and painted over the fiberglass. That was kind of rough so I painted polyurethane marine sealer over that. Now if this sink leaks you may see a firey glow from the Denver area as my now not so inexpensive sink gos up in flames. Ken

    ...but you have a much better story than, "I bought a sink."

    With all the fillers you have put in, does the Jobo fit in now?
