    Your w/c work is the "cat's ass!" Plus it's photographed in your shop or garage. 10/10

    I love it! It's as industrial looking as your "workspace"!!

    I see you got on the PrimoFlex tip!

    I can't get over how TOUGH that kit looks!

    8/10

    Can't wait to see it finished!

    thnx Dr i like your rig as well :)

    that tubing you see there in the pix is actually my original tubing which is like 3yrs old . i thought about it at the time when i first assembled my rig and it turned out my thoughts were correct. thankfully i purchased 10ft and have been able to use it sparingly :)

    i didnt post my rig to get votes i just wanted to share my hobby with everyone else and hopefully help other hobbyists as well :)

    *sigh* Almost makes me miss workin in the shop. Wish I had a garage to use as a workspace.

    Anyway, very utilitarian looking. I like that. Coming along nicely, but I'd like to see a few pics with everything installed and hooked up before I vote.

    I gave you a 7 but only because of some of the outdated specs, I love the modding!!! the way you have your mcr 220 is exactly what I'm doing with my black I extreme 3.120!!

    Yeah, aren't those Bitspower barbs hella nice? I have a Bitspower reservoir top for my DDC, and those fittings just really impressed me. I'd also recommend the top to anyone. High quality all around.

    Good luck, looking for ward to finally seeing it all together. :toast:
