Default The Red Green Reservoir (patent pending)

I'm sure you guys saw gingerbees post earlier. Too bad I didnt see it before I went to home depot and make my own custom reservoir.

I will NOT be using this as my main res, I'm only using it to setup my loop for tomorrow until my swiftech mirco res gets here. I am just to anxious to get this setup, and dont work tomorrow so it will make for a non-boring day.

I hope you like it. Hehe!!!

It all started like this


Then this miricle evolved. Hehe yeah LAUGH at it, you know you want to! It will make due for a few days of testing my loop, and getting the hose lengths and everything mounted until my real rad arrives.



Anyways, thats exactly what Red Green would have made, minus the duct tape.

Cost me under $8. Woo!

I havent cut the barbs yet in the pic, they are about half that length, so it doesnt look as dumb as it does now.

I would have just punched some holes in a Beer Can and called it a day.

Nice job though LOL!
