Much better looking IMO (seems a little like cheating - but I'm good with that):
Figured I'd do some shots with the lights on...
Notice how it does weird things with the tubing... it looks almost clear where directly lit, and almost completely opaque where indirectly lit... but I like it.
One thing I will say about the Primochill Advanced LRT - at least in 3/8"X5/8" - it's definitely not coming off anytime soon (at least not without a ton of effort). Honestly I felt a little like a dairy farmer trying to coax that connection at the far right on to the fitting... and that was after using hot water to soften the tubing!
Just for grins I took one with the panel set to RED - in case I changed my mind and went red in the future (since I'm not planning on painting the MB parts blue or black). In real life it makes the tube go black - but in the photo the panel looks orange and the tube still look blue. So hard to photograph these panels accurately it seems.
And the view through the window... (and yes, I do need to dust/wipe it - so dusty)
Basically, you won't really see the tubing from the reservoir (or the reservoir itself for that matter) unless I order an XL door panel... that might happen, but I'm not worried about it since that's why I wanted the tubing mostly straight in the parts you can see... and curved out of the way of wiring, etc. for the rest of it.
Now I just have to leak-test and I'm pretty scared of that actually, because I've never had a build with this many fittings... nor one that was this difficult to run the tubing on - so I'm really hoping I got it all right the first time! Doing any of it over again is not something I would look forward to at all. Edited by DiGiCiDAL - 7/4/13 at 11:00am
