What kind of mod can you get for $1.49? Well I will show you.


Radiator Overflow tank.

I am in the process of slowly relocating some things in order to cut out the inner fenders, and weld in some new raised ones for better clearance when I am rollin low. Let me know what you think.

And for those that hate it, don't worry, I don't get upset about negative comments.

Oh yeah, forgot to add in there that the zip ties are only temporary. Once I get everything relocated and the new inner fenders in place, I will find a better way to mount them. I haven't really thought of anything good yet so the zip ties will do for now.

A buddy of mine actually suggested the fire extinguisher brackets, and then suggested just using a fire extinguisher... If I was keeping the truck red, I would probably do that, but being as the truck will eventually be blue and silver, I don't think the extinguisher will match up too well.

NOS bottle FTW. I cut up a can and used that as a coil cover on the track *****. Silly punk Honda kids always ask why such a small nos bottle, I tell them I only need a 20 shot.

I kinda doubt somebody bought it. It had over 272,xxx miles on it when we traded it in on my truck, we got $300 for it. Just had the trans rebuilt and it was still not working right. I would have made a great parts car. I actually kinda miss it a little.

Zip ties are a mans best friend...errr, maybe not, but they serve their purpose for now.

I have had several ideas going through my head on what to use. I had already gotten to a point where I had to put something in there, and my buddy needed a beer so the idea hit me.

And yes, I do hate it when my beer can overflow tank doesn't match my paint....lol Even though my truck is red right now, and probably will be for at least another year. Oh well.
