      I'm looking to do hardlines with my new hatch design.
      where should I go to learn about them? What materials to use, what tools are needed, fittings required...
      I have two of the mason-tech sold 3 gallon tanks w/ One 1/2"NPT port and one 1/4"NPT port on each end cap. One 1/4"NPT port on the side and one 1/4"NPT port on the bottom for a drain.
      The tanks have individual compressors, and are in series to the manifold.

      Like anything there are different ways of doing things. I like to JIC flare my connections and use a nut and collar. Some people use compression fittings, and still others PTC, or swaglock if your looking to spend $$$
      There is information in this thread of the tools I bought to do it here at our shop. Hardlines are very big in the hydro world, and Layitlow is the best Lowrider forum. You can search there or google.
      The best way to learn is to do it! You are just going to waste some material in the begining.

      I will add a couple tips for 2010
      "K" grade copper is nicer to work with. It is a bit thicker wall.
      Always buy straight runs. Coiled copper is cheap and never looks as good.

      actually, to be honest, it probably wouldint lol. after the tools and tubing and fittings and all the trial and error and finally finishing your first hardline setup to come to the realization 8 hours later that you could have done it differently and better which has a tendency to repeat itself. i redid mine 3 times lol.
      plus like travy said, then you guys wouldnt get to hang out with me. that comes free with the hardline install.
      everyone else thanks.

      I just made a hardline for my brother's Ego paintball gun. I tried to make it cool looking but he kept bitching about how it was in the way of getting a hand on the regulator so I editted it a couple times. I'll post a pic of it tonight/tomorrow.
