Does Aurora coolant last long before degrading and gooping a loop now? Always stopped me even considering it before.

As always, top shelf work...


Unrelated question, are you up for renting your tubing mandrel kit and psu tester anytime in the nearish future?

Not sure if the Aurora will last. There are a lot of equipment that will not last as the particles find dead spots in the loop and fill them. My loop shouldn't have any though. But if it fails, I will be ok with it. As long as I got pictures and video. Then I'll move to the original dark 'grand bleu' coolant.

As for the bending kit, very bad timing. I need to do this rig then MAEL afterward. After Christmas maybe.

I have always wanted to use Aurora, but my loops tend to be more complex than they need to be, so I have never bothered. I know that Mick was working on a more stable version but haven't heard much.


As far as the mandrel kit I am in no great hurry. Shoot me a pm like the last time and I should have no problem. As soon as spring hits I am hooped for time ;)

This is actually Aurora 2, which has improved. But it is still not perfect. Due to the size and weight of the particles dead spots will always be an issue.

Thanks. Haven't seen you posting on HWC in a while.




Haven't done anything w/ the case for a few days as work and headlight modding has got in the way. But the sun and clouds cooperated for some better pictures. Still unedited. Life without a desktop kind of sucks.

Nice cable run lowfat and that black powder looks really good. It's a shame that your hole covering method didn't work, better luck next time.

I have been sick and now I am back, but nursing injuries that I suffered from getting rear ended in October.
