Running behind as usual...
Finally finished the cabling:
I had to change things around a bit for the lighting which is what has caused the delay.
I wasn't aware of this but it seems the further the cathode is (wiring length) from the inverter the weaker the light becomes. I thought this might be a problem with the inverter itself or my choice of cold cathodes. However after testing on another smaller cathode fed by a single port inverter the problem was the same. Testing using a different PSU with stock cables produced the same result, so is not related to the custom cables.
So instead of having a single central 4 port inverter, I've ordered two dual inverters. The wiring from the switch now runs over 18awg cabling to the back corner (above the psu) and the front corner. This wiring will then plug in directly to a dual inverter at each location. Once the inverters arrive in the next day or so I'll take pictures of this.

You and me both
, I really want to be at the filling stage by this coming weekend, if the top panel doesn't take too long I should be on to tubing by Wednesday or Thursday.Edited by soth - 12/16/12 at 10:52pm
