If you read the 1st post, it says I saved 2.5ft of tubing over the Perrin. This is just from the one side. A V-mount would surely save a TON of tubing, but I had to draw the line somewhere. It's enough work as it is. You forget that all this has to work when you are done with it.
I am still tracking down leaks.
A word of the wise to people looking to powdercoat tubing, do not use textured tubing. This stuff is giving me a tough time trying to seal it.
