ARgh! So one of the real things I hate about w/c'ing is that for most cases, you only have one case to work with so you need to pick a theme and stick with it. While I really like my silver/red theme, this blue/silver theme of Lowfat looks unbelievable!!! I also saw another similar theme an a case (all blue, white, silver) - sooooo hot!

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.

It will probably stay so until the day before I take it to the powder coaters.
