Love reading the progress and stories. Very cool finding the old homestead. Don't forget to get a metal detector.

Grabbed a 275g soap tank and cut the top off for the hottub. I thinking of using a car radiator over a fire pit to heat it.

I have never done this just read about it for heating stills or pig scalding barrels and I think MacGyver showed it in an episode or two . If you take a 2 inch steel pipe, plug one end with a wooden plug(wooden plug will blow out if pressure ever builds up for safety) The other end of the pipe gets plumbed into the bottom of your tank with a slight up hill slope going to the tank. Light a fire under the pipe near the wooden plug and convection currents will start in the pipe heating the water in the tank.
