yeah, it should have holes or gaps in it already.  :L:  doesn't have to be big ones, but they should be there.  if not, I'd consider that tank a defect. :(

Hey, JeepNut, USS Paul F. Foster--were you in Battlegroup Delta, serving USS Constellation CV-64? I was on Connie, came back from deployment June 1st, 1989. I'm almost sure you were in BG Delta, but I'd have to check my cruisebook to confirm.

Got the boroscope out and indeed all the little "gold" dots in the picture are small holes!

There are like 6 of them about 1/4" - 5/16" diameter.

Nice except... I guess I can't get 23 gallons in it...sigh.

oh well.

Was before and after ya. lol

BG C for Carl Vinson and the next cruise after our yard period (Tomahawk VLS installed... WHEE!) we served in BG E for Ranger....

Was lucky enough to have 2 full cruises and a mini RIMPAC on the same outstanding Spruance class.  She's the last floating I believe.

Now serving as the Navy's latest test platform out of Port Hueneme.

is it a 23 gal tank?

It's said to be 18gal.

I should dump water into it and see... I'm so curious and there's so much conflicting info.

Do we have a source for the windsheild clips for the chrome trim?  I searched McMaster Carr and Clips&Fasteners.com with no luck.

If we can't get new I guess I'll ask some of the folks with trim for sale in the classifieds. But would rather have new plastic.

I forgot who made mine but I got them off ebay for an XJ. Try an XJ for front end stuff including the windshield.
