I also followed my way back here after seeing someone from OCAU making a nutty watercooling system! (its been a while since ive trolled around here) And take the ugliest mod thing as a compliment - its a sign of jealousy. Hell i think you know but the difference between something functional and something beautiful in the mechanical world is essentially a fancy cover. Fancy wood grain doors in your car? Well just behind that is a bunch of pushrods and levers and sticky black goo! Fancy engine cover on your new ford GT? Well just under that is a mess of hoses and wires. Also if they bothered to look at each component they'd quickly see that each solder, each component is very carefully and beautifully constructed with purpose and skill. Overall it looks a bit messy now, much like an unfinished house looks messy, so dont get down about that, the rest of us really can appreciate the effort involved and the skill involved.
