    well i drilled my 120 last night, was easier than anticipated.  wasn't nervous but not a patient person either haha.  went through 2 batteries and my cordless was very very hot when i was done, had to resort to a corded drill to finish the last hole.  installed a glass holes over flow with 2 1.5" bulkheads, the over flow box is very narrow and kinda difficult to get the bulkheads started but all in all very easy to do.  i'm just happy as hell i didn't break anything :)

    Congrats...I bet there were some nervous moments drilling a tank that big with it being your first one. I'm not sure I could have done that; I think I would have chickened out. Nice work!
