I'm not sure it really matters all that much, but I'm trying to keep the direct runs into and out of the pump straight if I can help it. With all the other 45's and 90's I'm going to use, a couple more in the immediate proximity of the pump probably wouldn't make much of a difference, but for some reason the straight shots make me feel better.

I've never done it actually, but dropping the small lengths of tubing onto the compressions should be too easy. I'm not worried about that.

No, Danger Den is in Portland. I'm at the other end of the country in Georgia.

Where my order is... who knows.

I swear, I know when the UPS guy stops off to get a burger on their tracking system. I don't know what's up with Fed Ex. I always seem to have bad luck with them.

These jobbies. They're theaded clean through with a G1/4 female thread to accept fittings. The gnurled part is fixed to the visible side of one end, and the loose gnurled bit tightens down to fix the fitting securely to a panel. The mechanic is similar to installing a bulgin vandal resistant switch.

Its the threaded bit on the non-visible side that I might need to shave down some. Otherwise, when I screw a male to male fitting in between the pass through and the pump, the pump might sit too high. Hopefully I won't need to, but if needs be, I figure as long as I grind/file it down smooth and level I won't have any issues with sealing.

Yeah, PPC's isn't usually the cheapest, but they're usually in the ball park. That and the fact that they're in Florida means a cheap UPS ground rate for me on shipping, and typically only a 2 day wait from the day I place my order.

was just making sure if the pass through you were talking about was the same one i was thinking about.

hey its closer and such. so thats always good. if you do need a male to male... koolance makes super thin ones compared to BP. so thats always an option.

Nice spot there naf! I'll have to try that. It might be just the ticket!

In other Saturday modding madness news, the interior case panels are coming together now.

Here's some teaser shots:







I really need a tripod if I'm going to keep trying to take these no-flash shots.
