Default Scored a tank for a new offset

I got my hands on an old burned up compressor that I plan on using to build an offset smoker. Best I can figure it's about 120 gallons (24x64 inches). I plan on following the same sort of design that dkryzer is building (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=151005). I hope to make some good progress in the next few weeks...any advice for a beginner?

I also saw to get firebox and chimney specs from http://www.feldoncentral.com/bbqcalculator.html

If you don't mind me asking how much did the tank cost you?
