    As it should be,I was just expressing my surprise at not seeing it as a detail,Im not a fan of it either but as a motorsport detailing 'feature' ,it has its place.

    I don't know if I've ever heard a color referred to as refreshing before, but I think you're right, it really is. I really love the paint job so far. That little bit of black pin striping really helps makes it all pop.

    @Jojo, Thanks buddy! love your HotRod!

    Decided on dual serial for the SLI bridge so I had to cut and bend new SS tubing segments for entering and exiting the GPU blocks. Here is the Koolance SLI Bridge, GTX Backplate and Blocks

    Whoa

    Your attention to detail stimulates my OCD! (That sounds worse than intended)

    Haha, I appreciate the post! Thursday night I worked on the final tubing link from GPU bridge to the water pump. I had bent 3 different tubes from the Stainless, first two were slightly off, they could have worked, but the tubing didn't sit perfectly flush in the compression fitting. Finally after 1.5 hrs, I had bent and cut right piece. I looked up at the clock and thought "Ugh, I could have accomplished so many other tasks instead of working on this!" As many of you know, that motivation for perfection can be an asset or handicap at times. lf I feel my work has cut corners, then I've only let myself down.

    On Saturday I received my DDR sticks, 32GB of Corsair Vengeance. The sticks were Black, so I hit local home improvement store and found a great aerosol substitute paint for the Porsche Gulf Racing Blue, it's Harbor Blue enamel paint by Rustoleum. I'm using these to create a DIY video guide to painting DDR heat spreaders, too!
