The inside of the top and bottom of each side should have another piece of 2x4 across the width of the stand, also as it is a 72" stand, you NEED another support in the middle.
i have them there that was the rough draft of it.the only thing i have left is to add a center brace in the front..i plan on kickin that wet dry for a 55 gallon sump when im done with it.
