Default DIY two-stage regulator: have all the pieces, how to assemble?

About 3 years or so ago I was going to start a new hi-tech tank project and had bought all the necessary pieces of equipment to put it together. Having gotten tired of cheaper regulators that always drift, I had also done a ton of research on the best CO2 regulator and had found a thread with a "recipe" for a very high quality DIY piece, and bought all the necessary bits and pieces for it as detailed in that famous post. Shortly after I ordered everything, we moved across the country, life got in the way, etc. etc. so fast forward to now: I am now restarting the tank project and want to assemble the regulator but can no longer find the thread that had the instructions.

This being my first attempts at a DIY reg, I don't want to get it wrong so I am listing all the components in the hopes that someone can walk me through this:

- Victor SGT500-40-4F-4F-05 stainless steel regulator (has the LP gauge already with it)
- Victor Stainless Steel 2" 4000 psi gauge
- SS CGA 320 nipple and nut
- Ideal Valve needle valve model V54-1-12
- Burkert 00463939 solenoid
- Berkert Electrical Connection type 2506

And the following Swagelok fittings:
- SS-4-HLN-2.00 (SS, Hex long nipple, 1/4" X 2" OAL)
- SS-4-RSE-2 (Reducing street elbow)
- SS-2-ME (Male elbow)
- SS-2C2-1/3 (1/8" MNPT check valve, 1/3 psi cracking)
- SS-6M0-7-2 (6mm Swagelok x 1/8" FNPT SS connector)
- SS-6M5-4M (SS Swagelok tubing insert, 6mm OD x 4mm ID) - Qty 2
- SS-6M0-NFSET (SS nut and ferrule S mm) - Qty 3


Thanks in advance for the help!

(I'll post this in another forum as well)

Hello PK1. I believe that this is the thread that you are looking for, unfortunately the photos he took no longer seem to be linked, but the instructions are all there, as well as some other build links.
