Such an amazing build! Just keeps getting better! Quick question, which fittings are these? I think you answered before that they were 3/4"? Are they 1" to 3/4" reducers? Just trying to pickup everything I need to connect 1" to a reefer. 1" slip to 3/4" threaded? Thanks and sorry, I'm just really confused.

Ya, thats what I was trying to figure out as well.... are the 3/4 inch to 1 inch. Sorry Broadfield, the force is strong with you. As you can tell the rest of us don't have Jedi skills. LOL.
Yes, it is a 3/4" MPT x 1" slip. I bought those from PVCfittingsonline.com

Well, I got a chunk of it done... but still a LOT left to do. Here it is with the cover plates popped on. I got all of the mounting of the base plates done and hinged. I installed magnets to all of the cover plates/base plates. Next up is installing all of the LED strips for the edge lighting, mounting modules and wiring, making a white background to wrap around the back of the DOS container etc. I might illuminate the area around/behind the DOS container, but I'll wait to see how much the edge lighting illuminates it.

Got my modules mounted tonight. I modified the PM2 and 1-Link case so I could flip them and have the cables come out the top... but not have the sticker upside down. Also finished the white background for the DDR on the lower panel. Only thing left is to get my LEDs installed for the edge lighting. I actually have white here, but want to try amber first before I make the final decision.
