Very good article.  So easy a caveman could do it.  Yeah, right, some cavemen, not all.

Something to go along with the article, if your going to try this yourself.

Before you go to fit the tubes into the bowls, warm the bowls up a little in the oven and put the tubes in the freezer for a while.

This will make inserting the tubes into the bowls easier.

Of course, the easiest solution is to send to SISF at Shoodaben Engineering and let a pro do it.

When is your birthday ;D ;D ;D ;D

Steve charges $80 to do all 4 overflow tubes, including a nice drain tube system to route any future overflow gas to the lower left rear side. I think this even includes the cost of shipping one way. Not that some folks could not do this by themselves.......I am sure some can. However, if you have any doubts about you ability to get it done right, I would not recommend trying it. This is a tough job to do right without a drill press. If you booger up one bowl, you will probably think that $80 was a heck of a bargain.
