    The flowmeter holder is an original. Nice, very nice! :thumb:

    I'm looking forward to seeing how you are going to plumb your loop with the dual pumps. Are you planning to run your pumps in series or parallel?

    The cables from the second psu are out of sight now and guided through an aluminium profil to the back (behand the aluminium sheets.

    I'm working on the aluminium part that will keep the reservoir (in the front) in place.

    Here you can see how the hoses will be kept in place. These holders are almost out of sight when everything is in place.

    The reservoir could in theory slip out of the back

    [​IMG]

    To prevent the reservoir from sliding to the back I attached a piece of an aluminium profile.

    I will do that when I take everything apart next week. Maybe you will know it will fit when I tell you the width of a FMJ housing is 9,6 centimeters (that's with the bolts on the sides included)
    The room needed to place them beside eachother will be 19,2 centimeters. So this should fit into the Lian on the bottom according to my measurements.

    After the installation of the Danger Den fillcap I had the feeling the top didn't look the way it should look. That's why I made another acrylic part.

    [​IMG]

    It will come right under the grill, reservoir and the ring from the fillcap. Before I can finish the part I will have to mark the places to drill the mountingholes. After that I will make the acrylic a bit smaller, so only the sides will be visible underneath the grill, reservoir and fillcap. The acrylic glas will "connect" the seperate parts that are in the top of the case.

    Franklin I am impressed with your acrylic work. Do you make your cuts "freehand"?

    That is a nice peice of acrylic... not that bad to make that shape, what is more impressive is the metal work in the project... convergence is more about specailzed plexi work...
