    Are you saying DIY as in fitting a bought kit or you made up the kit ?

    It looks every bit as good as the kit I paid £100 for. I thought it was pretty good value, all the bits were so well make and fitted perfectly.

    The only pain in the bum is fitting the micro-switch, a bit on the fiddly side.

    Hi Brian -Diy as in making up and fitting all for nothing made from stuff in the garage or got from mates /skip. :thumb:Took 6 weeks to gather all the bits simply because I wanted/refused to pay for anything.The pipes are made from bath overflow pipe which I had but only one end so I had to wait until mate fitted another bath hence 6 weeks :BigGrin: then I needed a 4ins blanking plate to fit the slimline light switch box what took a couple of weeks before my sparkie mate called at my house :Wink:My other mate got the comp fans then we were ready to fit --and yes the micro switch was a pain at first until we hit on super glueing it in place and then screwing which took the fidling about out of the job :thumb:
    I could have bought the couple of bits I was missing for less than a fiver and got stright on with it but the whole challenge was to do it for nothing,other than a mug of coffee for mates as they called and dropped off the bits and tried to explain exactly what I intended to make :Rofl1::BigGrin:
    It all came about from the dark sides Vicadicdoc who made one up from bits and a bought in-line SOG fan (£36) who also sent me links to the sog fitting web site.
    Still working fine after 6 yrs -ish :thumb:

    If it's a pain in the bum I reckon you may have fitted the switch in the wrong position!

    All I bought was the switch (£1.95), the fan (£1.68) and the filter (£2.25)(£6.75 divided by 3, for 3 lots); I didn't have any useful mates. lol
