    Some little update, i finished the bracket for the reservoir.
    I've make two hole in the bottom part and then I threaded them for M3 screws

    So now the reservoir is perfectly fixed to the radiator, of course i will replace the screws with black ones in the final assembly!

    And yes guys, I see it was easy to guess! :clap: it's the main part of a broken Dyson vaccum cleaner!
    I love the design of these vacuums and this particular part look very Alien, coming from space! So i had the idea to recycle it in my project! :D

    I disassembly the "alien object" and removed all the interior unnecessary parts with dremel, to achieve the maximum space possible.
    It's really incredible how the space obtained allows the insertion of a 7x7 cm square object....

    ....and you have to know that 7x7 cm its the exact same size of the waterpump!
    So here it is, we have an alien pump cover!

    To cover the big hole in the top, i've make a thin sheet of lexan and wrapped it black.
    And it's again incredible that all its centered, so the hole in the top it's exactly on the pump IN hole!
