I gotta get me one of them tanks to make a blind.

Couple of questions though:

When you cut out the windows, they are obviously slightly smaller than the new opening. How do you keep them rain tight and more importantly bug tight? Same with the door.
Can you post better pics of how you made the access opening to get in and out?

That's some fine work! Would love to have more time to do these sorts of projects. Has to be fun work and enjoyable to put the toys to use.

I used a flexible trim piece to cover the gap.

how hot does it get inside that pit blind ? I was thinking of making one , and get it deep in the ground just for gun hunting on hot days .. but don't know for sure if it would stay cool since it's part in the ground or if it would still be hot as all get out int there ... here is what the temp showed this weekend at the ranch!

It wasn't bad. It was also in the shade though to help camouflage it.

Had a couple people ask me about this stuff so I figured I'd bring back from a long time ago.

How is the poly tank holding up in the ground buried for the last 8 years?

I have never seen evidence of any of these inventions, so can only presume the ideas must have been pilfered from other redneck engineers!
