I searched on "overflow" and got some helpful info, but didn't get everything I'd like to know. Right now I'm using a cheap plastic container in place of the washer fluid container (67 - plastic, not the bag). I'd like to put the washer fluid container back on and also have an overflow -- any suggestions? I'm I correct that they did not come with a factory overflow system? If any of you have slick systems, can you help me out? Pics would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I posted on this last week and didn't get too many responses. I can't believe everybody is just letting their car puke everywhere. Mustang's Plus is advertising a stainless steel one that is pretty slick. It bolts to the radiator mounting bolts to the left of the radiator. I'm thinking of making one out of aluminum tubing. I'd also like to get the ideas of the others on the forum.

Used one from a TR7, bout the size of a quart jar mounted low on the rad, last spring. Then put in a new
4 row and shroud, haven't needed one since.

Jim - For all of us (myself included) who are not aluminum welders, do you think a system made of PVC or ABS would hold up OK? I think painted black they might look similar and be easier to make or cheaper than buying.
I'm sure the stainless tube looks slick, but I'd rather go for a stealth look.
Just an idea - Dickson

I have a round alum overflow, I got it from Mustangs Plus. It looks pretty trick and mounts next to the radiator out of the way.

This is'nt a very good picture but you can just see part of it on the lower rt hand side

It's a plastic overflow jug out of a late 80's early 90's GMC truck.

I thought it would be allright to put a GM part on my car as long as it was used as a "Puke" container /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

BillGear - do you have any pics? I saw lots of pics on your site, but couldn't see the overflow.

So were there any mustangs that came with an overflow?

Thanks

On my 66, I mounted an off-the-shelf overflow kit on the radiator support, which still leaves room for the washer bag. Check it out:

I've seen the aluminum tubes people talk about. They look great, but I prefer to be able to look at the overflow bottle at a glance and see how full it is.
