    Just a piece of suggestion.
    Cover the entire floor with cardboard, I had a bad experience in past in breaking floor tiles by dropping the spanner.

    great, you have been much far than a normal DIY guy, the electrolysis is taking things to the next level, how are you going to seal the tank? rust will return the moment it goes back to active duty.

    If I was you I would have done this before painting as chances of getting pin holes is high with such a process.

    anyways great knowledge sharing. All the Best.
