fourth gen coolant tank swap

ok I know this has been done before but I wanted to add mine, its an easy setup and looks great I think! got the template which is a perfect fit! then just aligned it till I got it where it need to be then cut my hole, I had to dril and tap a hole for the bolt that secures the tank.

Re: fourth gen coolant tank swap

Look about right! Nice job.

I had trouble with my one bolt stripping out of the sheet metal. If I were to do it on my current car, I would probably be tack welding a nut on the underside, or using threaded body clips at the least. You might get yours positioned better though...I was flying blind when I did mine the first time haha.

I still like the idea of the dual tanks. Coolant/washer fluid in place of the battery, and sticking the battery somewhere else... but that 4th gen set up is nice and clean!!!

Re: fourth gen coolant tank swap

I definitely plan on doing this soon to my car. Very clean, and my car never sees rain so I will be ditching the washer bottle all together.
