Spent the majority of the day getting the third cab going, made and wired the light, dealt with some sealing work, wiring, bit of painting, mounting a bunch of things.

Things still left to do is i need to get some open cell foam for the door seal as the closed cell stuff i tried using is too stiff so i have light leaks, also waiting on a new driver the one temporarily hooked up is an xlg-50 from my older temporary smaller third cab i had for a couple cycles.

And i need to find some reservoirs, as my old style short ikea kuggis containers they dont make in that size anymore, so either i go with the taller ones or im looking for something else, a few clear container options out there but i dont want to have to paint any reservoir for light reasons, just a pain in the a$$ and usually starts chipping in the long run.

Which of their products did you use? I just finished up the old complete product and an a little overwhelmed with the new stuff. Was also thinking of Jacks.

Used the 1 part, versions 1, 2, 2.1, 3 whatever
also tried their 2 part for a bit but preferred the 1 part as it was underwhelming in comparison.

The reason im trying some others like Jacks is i had a sneaking suspicion due to the organics involved in the Megacrop mix i would get bacteria blooms or issues and say the pH would then be all over the map and no where near stable, so wanted to go more to a straight synthetic route to see if my suspicions were true, so far its going well.
