Finally got warm enough to put the new wheels on Arnie.

New Wheels

The overall diameter is the same, but the wheel is taller with a shorter tire. They’re also a full inch wider, so they fill out the wells a lot better. The cornering is “vastly” improved – very difficult to even squeal them in the turns. Very entertaining on our windy country roads.

These were from TireRack.

So, the iMacQuarium is done, and now has an inhabitant – Woz the fish.

It's Woz!

We’ve since added a heater and a bit of terrain. I’ll take pictures once we route the wires correctly for it. However, in order to do so, we need to empty out most of the water, and we don’t want to disturb Woz quite yet. He got a little cold a couple of nights ago, and we want to give him a few weeks of nice warm temperatures before we go rearranging his world.

This was a kit from Jake Harms. The instructions were very detailed, but the process does take some time. Of course, he has ready-made ones already built, so if you don’t want to spend the time, it might be worth ordering one.
