Dark Chrome

It took a lot of effort/time but i couldn't be happier how it turned out. This was only meant to be a build to last me 6 months before I transplanted everything into a extremely modded TJ11 which was going to be my 'dream pc' build. But this one got more and more crazy as I went forward with its loop design and the acrylic work. The end result is its the first custom rig that I've finished that i still catch myself staring at weeks after its completion. So I'm leaning towards keeping it for the long run!, i think it would hurt too much to pull it apart (I did too good of a job, rats!).

the tubing is nickel coated brass by barrow, and the fittings are also barrow. 14mm. i highly highly recommend both the fittings and metal tubing, as quality was top notch and ease of use was also super high. The only thing is the cost of going with metal tubing; SOO many fittings. i was very surprised how easy the metal tubing was to cut with just a basic pipe cutter, meaning its basically easier to work with than acrylic tubing.

feel free to ask any questions in the comment section!
