    Well, the fittings shouldn't be too much of a problem, they have quick disconnects etc.... at home depot and lowes in copper, plastic etc... Pergformance pc's probably has a lot of that too but the tubing lengths you would maybe have to hit a supply house for any selection and decent pricing. I guess you could go pvc and paint it too, that might be cool. Its your project brotha, we trust ya.

    Yeah, that's a decent option too. Probably got a lot of bike guys down there that will do that for ya... maybe you can swap your pc enthusiast knowledge for some free plating?!?!?!

    deburring is fun
     
    use very light pressure and a sharp wheel on your tubing cutter - you'll get less 'squeeze' to remove

    That's the east part lol, I picked up a new reader and tube cutter, its the bends that I'm worried about, the alphacool tubes have pretty thick walls, 13mm OD 10mm ID, and there is one bend that needs done ( more like 2, it needs to dog leg from the pump out to the rad in). If I go the other way my return is a problem.

     thanks, i might try that, i have a double 45 that i might try and see how that looks, my ram is a little to tall and a bit in the way, to clear it i have a small dog leg at the radiator that i hope doesnt cause any issues with bleeding.
