Where do you buy your vinyl wrap for this purpose?
I don't have the list as I don't really know what I need in term of the names for the parts. I know how the look like so that's how I am going to shop for the parts just by looking.
Now in term of their sizes, what size I need to go for PVC piping, unions, and valves? Schedule 40 or 80 for the piping? how do I know which size of unions, fittings, and valves I need if I go for either schedule 40 or 80?

You can get vinyl wrap from a sign print shop. There are YT vids to apply it, rubbing alcohol to clean the surfaces, spray bottle of water and spray on surfaces to make positioning easier and a plastic card, like an expired/unused bank/CC/membership card to push the air/water bubble out for a smooth finish.
Easiest way to determine parts is to draw/map out the plumbing runs. Use straight lines for the pipe run and every bend a fitting (45* or 90* elbow).
Places that you want to disconnect and reconnect is a union. Flow control a valve. On/off/half way a True Union Ball Valve (TUBV) and precise flow, a gate valve.
SCH40 is all you need for cabinet to aquarium plumbing.
Sizing you match up with the size of bulkhead. Reducing to match pump output diameter, reactor input diameter, etc. Here's where it can get complicated with the various types of reducing bushings to meet the "termination"/end run. Ie, MPT-barb, SPIG-FPT reducing bushing, SOC-FPT reducing bushing, adapters, etc.
Either we can help you with a parts list here or you can go to JJ Downs with your plan and the guys there will help you with what you need based on your plumbing diagram and supporting equipment..they are AWESOME that way!

to do 250 redsea metric pipe to standard pipe, the only one special part you will need to find is either 1 of 3/4" male to slip, or 32mm x 1" pvc adapter or 32mm x 1" transition union to convert to standard pipes (JJ downs has all of them). after that you can plan whatever manifold you like, but i suggest you google what other people have done to get some ideas going.
spear gate vale (aquariumdepot)
color pvc pipe (aquarium deopt or reefpvc.ca)
grey 3/4" & 1" pvc pipe and all fittings (sch 40/80) local plumbing store
