After putting in aluminum radiator in my 66, I want to get rid of the bulky overflow tank I have. I’m thinking about doing a polished 2 inch cylindrical one. Post up What you have, give me some ideas! Thanks
As I am well versed in the difficulty you have in taking pictures, I will wait patiently since I pulled a small aluminum bottle from a metal bin here at work (can't remember what it was, looks like a mini-O2 bottle) and intend to do the same as you did.I can get a pic this weekend but I used a propane bottle , (washed it out with water first then flushed it with WD40) welded an input up top and a overflow off the fill valve then welded a fitting below to add a drain valve down below. Couple of tabs on the side. Mounted it on the passenger side on the radiator as low as I could. Painted satin black, its almost invisible and very clean which is just what I wanted. I have this "thing" about drawing eyes to something insignificant. I don't like engine compartments that have polished aluminum or chrome water bottles, alternators or monte carlo bars etc, it draws the attention away from what I want people to see, a clean small block done in bead-blasted aluminum and a cast-iron painted block with silver headers against a satin black backdrop. The last thing I want to happen when I open the hood is for someone to say; "wow, cool overflow bottle". This doesn't apply to people that go full on chrome or polished aluminum ($$$) where the entire engine bay is done that way, then the pieces blend into the scheme.
