For those of you than are redoing the sides of your snap&nap.
Lowes and home depot have 4'x8' white fiberglass paneling.(about $30)

I usde this to recover the folding side panels inside and out. No need to remove the panels. I used tub surround adhesive to glue it to the old sides. They also have a 1/4" moulding that goes around the edges. looks like factory when done.

Bob, I'm not familiar with those panels, would they work to enclose the tanks under the rear?

The panels are only 1/8 " thick and are sold where the paneling is.
If you enclosed the bottom with a piece of plywood you can glue one of the sheets to the plywood. Before replacing my tanks I had to replace the plywood that was holding them up because it was rotted. I glued a sheet to the bottom before replacing the tanks. This can be seen in the photos of the tanks I posted.

thanks

The panels are FRP board, which depending on the store comes in smooth or orange peel texture.

I used the orange peel (only thing available here) to redo my bathroom a few years ago.

That's pretty average price across the country, I paid that much for them several years ago when I did my bathroom remodel [emoticon].
