Problem arises when you light up the reservoirs.
Let me explain, the reservoirs have their own lighting system, red light is behind the red reservoir and white behind the white. Playing with lighting the other day I noticed that the white light was a lot brighter than the red. So if I put white coolant in the red reservoir the light is not going to penetrate or light the fluid hardly at all. It could actually turn it pink looking.
Vis versa if I put red in the white reservoir then the white light is going to make red coolant glow a lot brighter.
So do I put red coolant in the white reservoir and white in the red reservoir and settle for an imbalanced light setup.
Swap the red light for another white light to help balance it up, or white in white and red in red and leave the lighting as it is.
Please comment as I would appreciate any feedback / suggestions.
thats a hard one to call, without filling it up and seeing what it looks like, what about clear fluid, not sure what or how it would look in your system but then you have your res lights to balance it out, its just a thought mind you.
