around 2-5 inches of 1 inch pvc (used for the tank expansion)
1 inch pvc endcap (used on the exterior part of the expansion)
3/4 inch pvc plug (used on the internal part of the expansion)
1/4 inch tubing
a red can of oatley "all purpose cement" (solvent weld)
airtech 2000 (of course)
Alternatively, you could use any air powered blaster and any size of pvc/cpvc for the tank expansion.
Take your 2k assembly out of the shell like so, and unscrew the screws for the goo gauge:
Then drain it like so:
Then work on getting the goo gauge plastic separated from the tank. I wiggled it back and forth and turned it some and it popped right out. This doesn't happen for me often, so you might have to cut it, then drill it out for the vinyl tubing to fit in.
Next, work on getting the tubing to squeeze in tightly. Once it is able to fit in, put some super glue on it and shove it in. Once that is done, put a good amount of the solvent weld around the seam. Don't hold back.
Now, I don't have pictures of this step, but it is pretty common sense. First sand your 3/4 inch pvc plug down about 1/16 of an inch so that if fits snug in the 1 inch pvc. Then drill out the center so that the tubing fits in snug and repeat what you did on the 2k tank. Then, mark where the pumps tubing will need to go in to the pvc part of the tank, and repeat what you just did for that. All pretty common sense. Please note that if you want to keep the black part of the shell on the gun, you will need to cut it out so the 1 inch pvc slides in. You will also need to remove the 2 screw ports. Here are a couple pictures to explain:
You are officially done. Here is what I ended up doing to mine (barrels not done yet):
Good luck, and happy modding.
