    Tank Conversion Question: Hinges?

    A year or so ago I undertook this project: http://terraforums.com/forums/showth...onversion+tank

    I'm looking to convert another tank and am interested in feedback from anyone who has used acrylic/plastic hinges rather than the plastic track method I used in initial conversion.

    Hinge examples can be found on this site that swords offered some time ago: http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/def...arentcatid=795

    Thanks...

    I'm mad. You're mad.' 'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
    'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'

    Ive never used those but a friend of mine wrote up an easy/cheap how to for "living hinges". He's been using them for over a yea with little to no wear.

    That was a clean install. I'm looking to have two glass panes open out from the front of the tank w/ the hinges glued on the side of the tank and to the front panes.
