Best pic I have now, can get a close-up later on. I made one for a customer of mine from some aluminium tube and scrap, pushlock AN fittings and a universal radiator cap thing.

^ Aren't those a Covert Performance / Kelly / Kmurph design? If I remember the threads, not a good reputation there.

I dont think you can do that; can you? I know of people deleting their overflow coolant tank and running a bypass to clean up that area of the engine bay, but not their header overflow tank!!

Crawford Performance makes a nice custom one but it's pricey!

I only have this photo. It is located next to the fuse box where the washer fluid used to be. You can see the ford radiator cap ontop the resivor and sitting lower and to the right is the coolant overflow.

This is my relocation. I'd like a better way to mount it but haven't messed with it much.

You can find them on Ebay, but beware, the quality varies very much between them.I bought a great quality one, but found it had the wrong size (Subaru uses the smaller MC size, this was a larger one)After ordering a small one from a different company I bought a larger cap, as the smaller one was just cheap looking junk.
