Anyone here used a reservoir with a frosted effect? Primochill makes one. I was thinking of making an arctic blue theme and figure the groundglass effect would look neat with blue Mayhem coolant.

Cool I will look into that.

Is the frosted reservoir have any degree of transparency that you can see color?

Do you mean 400 grit? I used 400 grit on my acrylic tubes and it looks great. Key is to go in one direction.

Sorry yes that is what I meant. 400 grit in one direction will give it a brushed look. Acrylic used in reservoirs is softer than acrylic tubing. It looks much better.
