Wow, loving the colors.

Front-mounted reservoir is awesome as well.

Great job!

Thanks.. my only gripe with the res is that the LEDs don't fit in firmly. Sneeze too hard and they'll fall out.. that's basically why I haven't opened the res to let the bubbles out. I don't feel like spending a half-hour screwing with the LEDs.

Absolutely love the build Dino! Glad I could help you out with everything - you did a great job with it. Couldn't have done a better job myself.
