I only have been to the one in South beach as we were going to open a business down there. There are better restaurants than Joe's in South beach, but you have to go there at least once to try out their key lime pie (the best I have ever had) and of course their stone crabs. thumb.gif








What kind of videos are you shooting? Professionally filmed? I love your product photography, but I was wondering about your videos. biggrin.gif

I am instantly hungry. That is unfair.

No...nothing professional, although I tinker with it enough in Premiere and After Effects so that some of them look professional. But...they are just family events, holidays, vacations, etc. Trying to capture as much of my kids lives as possible in pictures and video. They'll appreciate it when they are older.

Joe's is the best, but closed for the summer. Not stone crab season....

Here are some shots of my custom FrozenQ stuff I got this weekend.

I'm going to use a two reservoir setup to help equalize flow between several subloops:



Here is a black background behind it so you can see some of the laser etching a little better. It's an OU football helmet on top, and the Boomer Sooner logo on the bottom. The middle is crimson acrylic inlaid into a clear acrylic rectangle that runs from the top to the bottom.




I asked Alex (FrozenQ) to do 3 inlets on the top of each reservoir. One of the nice parts about ordering a custom res...is picking how many ports and where you want them.




...and 2 outlets on the bottom of each reservoir:




This picture shows the extra aluminum caps that you can order. They slide right over the black ends if you want to add a splash of color. These are painted copper, but if I choose to use the copper accents, I will have them actually plated copper. The paint just doesn't look like copper.






Some shots of the reservoir taken apart



Here is a closeup of the two outlets on the bottom of the reservoir...


...and you can see here when I flip the end around that the machining was a little loose. The threads run up the side of the reservoir cap. Don't think it will impact anything...but a little sloppy. Click the picture for a closeup and you will see what I mean.




I'll do some leak testing soon, but my first impression is a job well done by FrozenQ. I sent him some vector art and an idea via email, and he made it come too life. The price was not much more than the regular reservoirs that you can buy via his website....so I would encourage you all to dream up some big ideas and use him to make them. I'll update again after I leak test and get them installed. He doesn't turn around custom work very quickly....but I take that as a result of being incredibly busy and overwhelmed with custom requests. I don't consider it poor service since I was seeking something outside the norm.

My only complaint so far is that the cold cathode of course requires an inverter......which was not included. I'm sure that that was mentioned somewhere on the website....but it escaped me since I was doing my custom order via email. If you spend this much on a reservoir, it should come with everything necessary to turn it on.

Well, what did surprise me is that they are not lit directly. There is a cold cathode tube running up the middle. It's pulled out for these pictures, so you can't see it. But the tube is what lights up, and I guess the spiral tubes on the side just reflect the light. Won't know for sure until I get an INVERTER THAT WASN'T INCLUDED WITH THE RESERVOIR. I've got one ordered already from FrozenCPU, so I can show some shots all lit up next week.

I'm sure my wife would let me make a crazy case like yours, if I'd theme it similarly to yours. tongue.gif
