Ok update time.
YOUR GOING TO LOVE THIS.
Check this out... I got creative.

Few bucks at your fellow Princess Auto gets you a nice LCD Mag light


This is all that in there.


Now solder the positive and negative leads.


Now the test... 5V from an old psu I had kicken around.


now to begin installation


Heres the really cool part... 1/4 acrylic


Now insert the acrylic into a PVC fitting


Do the same thing to another fitting. and glue together


Now drill and thread the Barbs


Thats going to be one SWEET reservoir

You're good, with lots of ideas. But why 5 barbs on the res?

Thanks, I try... Engineering student. pays to be me.

The Heater core I have has 1 in and 4 out... so rather then messing around with the heater core to make 1 I used all 4 into the reservoir.

Heres some pics.

These are some test fit photos


You can get a glimsp of how things are set up.. you can see 2 of the lines into the res at the top.

That's one wicked res-core setup. Where's the fill point?

Glad you asked.. I screwed up honestly... looks like the res might get a 6th barb or something else thats fancy.

for a fill point you can just get an pvc elbow and then make a lid for it.

If your thinking of suggesting I use the elbow to attach to the reservoir it won't work since it is sealed off. however if thats not what your suggesting I could do something similar.

I think I am going to make this simple on me. I have a shut off valve with a 1/2 barb already on it... I'll put another barb on the reservoir and WALA I have a fill point. I just wish I payed attention to this sooner, I would of made it like my last set up where the fill port can be used as a drain as well. Damn I had to screw this one thing up.

ok I have a better idea now. Rather then adding ANOTHER barb to the reservoir I'm going to put a standard threaded pipe to the reservoir, and elbow heading up right and then a pipe to the top of the case. Then I'll add a screw on cap.. WALLA
