looks like my parts are happy in there mate, well done :) looks very tidy!

should be proud of that job, extremely well done.

for the bubble, tilt the case around like a mofo, you'll get it out eventually :)

if you mean you have a big airbubble in the res this isnt a problem because reservoirs was invented by danger den to stop air bubbles to get into the loop.

the res outlet has a design to only suck non bubbled water, keeping the bubbles from entering, in your case it should have it just before the pump intake.

my front bay res has bubbles in it but never get in my loop because of its outlet design but quickly disappears within minutes.

hope ive helped buddy:D

matt correct me if im wrong
