Default What size overflow are you using?

Wondering if a 32oz overflow tank would work for my Nailhead? What ya thinks?!?

I'm going to use a 2-litre Patron Silver bottle, if I can make a bracket that will hold it safely.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I was using a Even Williams 5th whiskey bottle on my 37 till the label came off so, I put a Corona bottle on and never had an overflow issue with either.

I have a 1 litre "V8 Splash" (tropical blend) juice bottle in mine. Gets a lot of finger points and laffs at car meets.

Level doesn't change much, car runs at about 185. But it does scrunch down a little when it does thirst. Might get something stronger.

I used a small boat fire extinguisher about a liter on the Essex, never over flowed on me.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

If you overflow your overflow, you've got bigger problems!
