Thanks for the kind words. The bar is set pretty damn high at 'Zilla, so I am just trying to keep up.
The tubing I ordered from McMaster-Carr. As they sell virtually everything on earth, they have clear tubing in as many variations as you can imagine.
(block out a couple of hours your first time on McMaster. You will be late for dinner...)
The tubing I used here will sweat just a bit, but I don't mind that. The fluid inlet port on the RCS masters is a 90 degree barb, so the tube needs to bend back on itself to get to the reservoir. I just put a 1/4" extension spring inside to keep it from kinking (thanks Home Depot).
I converted the bodywork fasteners (with the exception of the tail section bolts) to "Camlock". I prefer them to Dzus style, as they are a much tidier install than Dzus, and come in a ton of configurations. I get mine from a company called Skybolt, as Skybolt make them in aluminum instead of steel, but also have them in stainless and cad-plated as well.
The Renthals are awesome with all of the index marks. Unbeleivably high quality, as you would expect. I posted some pics of them before when I installed them, but here are a couple more. Note these are with the old reservoir mounts. Yuck.
This one is with the bendybrackets:
Lastly, a gratuitous side view to show it as it sits today:
They are never done, are they!
