That's what I'll be doing (with a fair bit of planning ahead of time which I couldn't really do with this build until after I'd seen the case), but the Res apparently will leak if I use any kind of short thread barb / fitting so I might have to design around having a standard straight barb on that.

Heh... but the res is the centerpiece to my creation..... without that a person might not notice at all that there's anything different than a standard build through the small window..... :)
