Week (2) Radiator flush and assembly, first test fit into case. The 60mm XE 480 + Noctua NF-A12x25 + Halo Lux fits perfectly with no gap. Figuring out filter and pass-through locations. Started on 3D printing model for later machining. Spent 20 seconds considering a water cooled couch...

Week (3) Filter mounted and plumbed. Isolation mount for dual pump completed. Settled on tongue and groove method of attachment for easy removal and maintenance – plate is mounted to the case, the backside of the pump bracket fits tightly in the slot, just two front bolts needed for a solid attachment. Basic templating and design started for the badge, machine work, and upholstery.
