I didn't read it all as I'm putting a floor down. We have air saws here. Cut right in the corner where it hits the floor. Don't bother taking anything off the console. Lift it up with most stuff still attached and put it up the back. Take take out and weld it up. Grind off old flange on deck. Grind round console. Put tank bank in after test. Console back down and glass in. Job done

Where would you cut exactly? I presume there is a flange on the bottom of the seat/console moulding as per the attached drawing, and that there is simply a strip/tape of glass matt and gelcoat that overlaps the flange?

Referring to attached crude drawing, would you cut at point A where the edge of the console moulding meets the floor (having cut back the treadmaster as you say), or at point B, where the seat joins the floor at a right angle - effectively cutting through the flange on the bottom of the seat moulding? Or perhaps halfway inbetween?

I was planning on draining the tank and filling full of water, rinsing down the surrounding area and using an air powered die grinder to grind back the fibreglass bonding strip at point A until the console flange is revealed, then dress-grinding the old bonding strip off the console in preparation for new bond.

How would you re-bond? I'm thinking a layer of CSM in resin, then a layer of glass tissue in resin, then flowcoat?

Many thanks
Tornado has no flange on there consoles,,

As biff said air saw flat to the floor ,, Or one of these

Tornado tanks are also ali not stainless steel,

you make it sound simple!
thanks for the tips Biffer I'll give it a go. I have reciprocating 'sabre' type saw

Could anyone suggest how many layers of CSM/glass tissue I should re-bond it back down with?

Wish me luck

sorry you'll have to translate for us numpties
is that

1x layer of 300gsm chopped-strand-mat,
then
1 layer of combination 600gsm Woven Roving / 300gsm Chopped Strand Mat
then
2 layers of 300gsm chopped strand mat

(then I presume flowcoat in colour to match?)

thankyou for your patience.

Chopper is chopped strand and combi is chopped strand stitched to a woven Matt Have a look at Matt and you should be looking for a 450 gram chop and something like a 600/300 combi

I've got the Fein Multimaster - mains powered. Excellent pieces of kit, much more control than a grinder. Not sure how long the batteries will last on a rechageable version

Replace the aluminium tank with a 'plastic' one.
