I will drill the elbow on the fuge thx.

I changed the fans because they were pretty crudded up with dust and creep. I will post a pic of which fans and where I got them. they were cheap and easy to swap out. If yours are noisy I would change them out mine are close to silent

married? man I just got out of college hah Iv been with the queen for 6 years though.

When she asked for a ring, I did the rational thing... I got her a yorkie puppy, got out of that one for another year or so.

Question: I ordered black Fusion spray paint for the plumbing but didn't want to wait the week to get it so I glued everything anyway. Can I still spray the plumbing after its been glued? Im worried the spray paint will mess with the pvc glue on the fittings.
