Looks fantastic. I'm about to start sourcing parts for my build in the next few days, mind sharing the parts list?

You need 2x "TEES" http://www.glaciertanks.com/TriClamp...ong_1_1_2.html
2x Barb Adapters (1/2 ID silicone hose streches on to these) http://www.glaciertanks.com/TriClamp...-1_1_2_TC.html
1x NPT adapter for Element http://www.glaciertanks.com/NPT_TriC...eavy_Duty.html
1x NPT adapter for Thermo Couple or RTD http://www.glaciertanks.com/NPT_TriC...eavy_Duty.html
and
5x clamps http://www.glaciertanks.com/TriClamp...gle_Hinge.html
and 5x gaskets http://www.glaciertanks.com/Silicone...1_2_White.html

Nice build. IMO, a slightly better option - Tri-Clover-RIMS-Tube.

I thought about that one but it doesn't come with the hose nipples so they were about the same price and the one I got was fully customizable
