    We continue with the small DIY.
    A bit of cutting, drilling, grind, painting, testing ...

    To begin, a picture of one of the two pumps

    Now DIY. To remain in the dominant white theme, and to cover the black background of the case, I made a white background which will be under the motherboard

    Then some paint work that are ready

    A few more pictures, with some positioning tests to better estimate the additional changes to make more and make sure that everything "will fit" well.


    Placing pumps, the orientation of the tops will be adjusted for connection to tubes.

    On the opposite side, some positioning tests.
    A support for the bottom reservoir will be done tomorrow.

    After a delay due to a shortage of parts, I'll be able to make the rigid tubing.
    Meanwhile, I continued to work on the case.
    To start, I made a support for the bottom reservoir

    Then I made a small change in the positioning of the pumps.
    With the pumps in the bottom, and power into place, I had no where to pass the tubes.
    So I moved the pumps up.

    To keep them aligned and stabilized, so I made a "coupling" between the two pumps holders.

    Well, this time, it's over. Here are the pictures of the rest of the work and the final pics.
    The setting up of rigid tubing was not easy because in this case, it must pass from one side to the other, while respecting the curves to join the different elements.

    Thank you. The work on tubes was hard, so some tubes are not well straights. I was limited by the number of 10/12mm tubes I had

    That is very striking to see. I love way you have maintained the same colour palette across the build with the red highlights on the tubing connectors and white fluid.

    One day I will build something like this, thanks for sharing your build!
