Brandon, after I saw your interest, I spent almost an hour yesterday hoping to find the seller. No joy.

I'll keep an eye out for it though as I'm always in the LCS for sale section on Ebay

hey guys I was wondering about adding some red food coloring to my water. would like the coolant to match my hose etc. would this be a bad idea? or a yeah go ahead and do it idea?. Also instead of putting back the stock side panel I have decided to make one out of clear 3/16 lexan, this way i can see more of the internals unlike with the stock panel just has a small cutout on the one side. I will post more pics once that is done

Food coloring will cause deposits in your blocks and pump. Also, it changes the density of the water, making your pump work slightly harder. I'm relatively new to watercooling, but everyone who seems to be a guru preaches against dyes and coolants, while recommending straight distilled water and a silver kill coil. That's all I use. My Fesser UV hose is almost opaque, so dye isn't needed. It would be nice, however, if the water in my res matched my hose. I used an additive for one day, and was strongly chastized by helpful members.

well i decided to make a custom lexan side cover instead of the stock one that has just a tiny clear window.This way I can see everything inside!! I alreadt cut the lexan to size,(pictures to follow) and need to pick up some lettering paint so i can do some fancy graphics and of course the name of my loops KUZTUM KOOLING. I was urprised that after my neighbour seen my setup, he asked if i could put one together for his son. I dont know yet what he has for hardware, but i told him that I would do it,Dont know what a person would even charge for labour? or even if I should? As soon as I have my lexan side window lettered up and completed I will post some pics

Sorry to hear that. I wish you well and a speedy recovery to good health. I'm sure it puts everything into perspective. I try not to bitch and moan very often about the little things in life, because, ultimately, the older I get the more fortunate I feel just to have realatively good health.
