Default Fiber glass tank

KI, colleagues.
When we moved to our actual house there was a bathroom whose WC tank was all mended. Recently I decided to change the tank but the WC model was too old to find a replacement and to put a new WC was so expensive without including the tile work reposition to match with the new one. I disassembled the WC and brought the tank to a autobody repair shop who work with fiber glass resin.
Using the broken pieces as models they made a new tank and a new cover. My wife completed the job with her sewing skills.

That looks like a ladies only model Alexis. Beautiful job on the covers.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I find this totally amazing . If I brought my toilet tank to a local body shop it would be at bare minimum of $1000 to make a reproduction from fibreglass . Be much cheaper to spend 50 bucks on a completely new toilet .

If you think I'm exaggerating , about 10 yeas ago we lowered some strand and it touched a cars roof leaving a 1" long scratch . That was a $500 bill

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I think putting the crack lines in there is hilarious.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
