finished my custom overflow and bug juice containers

finished these up tonight, they hold .85 gallons each, as the title states one is my antifreeze overflow the other is for windshield washer fluid. the cans were some tubes i dug out of the scrap at work, i welded in the tops and bottoms, then machined a filler neck wich was also welded in. i have yet to machine the caps, this is why you see the electrical tape in place of a cap LOL. the bug juice can uses the stock pump and sensor and the antifreeze can just has a 1/4" nipple threaded into the bottom. in the pics the antifreeze can is crooked but it's just sitting there for the pic, i didn't have the fitting i needed on hand so i didn't bolt it in, i'll stop after work tomarrow and get the fitting and hose i need then i can officially call this project done.....well all except for the caps.

bottom view of antifreeze can, block welded to bottom is threadded to accept fitting. i bent the mounting flange to be captured by the existing mounting bracket on the radiator where the shroud used to mount.

anyone have any suggestions for power coat color for these and my CAI? i was thinking either black chrome or Hemi orange, i think the orange may be too loud under the hood but i dunno, what you guys think?

The best mods are always the ones you can MAKE.. those are sweet! Great job.

What color is your truck? I painted my AEM (mopar style) CAI to match the truck, pearl black, then 4 coats of clear.
