Straight down from th bottom of the reservoir. Just need to pull all the hardware so I can tap a whole in the button for the bulkhead fitting.

What I have taken away from this build is how well the new stiff tubing looks - I will try and incorporate it into my upgrade.

Lowfat - this new stiff tubing works with standard fittings, correct? i.e. I would be able to get some to work with my BP 3/8"ID 1/2"OD fittings?

This black and grand bleu theme is likely my favourite they I've done.

The tubing is very hard to work with. There is a lot of trial and error.

No you wouldn't be able t use normal fittings. You need fittings specific to acrylic tube and the right size. If you wanted obtuse Primochill ridged tubing you have to use the Primochill compressions designed for ridged tubing.
