    Suggestion, you may want to label all the wires and try to tuck them up so they are running in some sort of fashion. Sorry that’s the ocd in me. .

    No that's a good idea. In fact I started to do that. Not the prettiest but enough to get the wires out of the way. I wanted to get a junction box but couldn't find one that the plugs would fit though. All the ones I look at were pretty big as well. I was hoping to find like a 1/2 box but couldn't. I found some plastic cover things for something else but they ended up being way to big. I also thought about making a box out of acrylic but the cost to do so would probably not be worth it. I also thought about cutting the plugs off and putting them back on but I'm not crazy about doing that. Ideally I would cut the cords and make them shorter. Then I would put that plug in a junction box that water resistant.

    I also have a manifold made and the pipes painted. That brings you guys up to date with where I'm currently at with my build.
