Anybody ever build a Aqua C copy?

I am considering building a Aqua C EV series copy? It seems to be a simple design. Does anybody have some pointers?

It is a simple design, the only thing difficult about it would be properly duplicating the spray injector.

its not hard ! basicly from what ive read use 3/4 pvc boil some water put the pvc in the water till it starts to get soft then pull it out and then crimp the end so you have a 3 tipped star ! not sure if that makes sence !

i made my skimmer using a beckett injector was super easy ! but if your not familair with skimmers ya could have a hard time dialing it in !
