I plan to use some liquor bottles for my brake fluid and my power steering fluid reservoirs in my bay when i shave and tuck my VR in my mark2 jetta coupe. Has anyone done this? and if you have could you please share some helpful hints.
Ill post pics when i go along
well im not 100% sure yet. But i figure that these reservoirs are not pressurized. So i plan to drill out the class and fabricate spots for the hoses to come out. I dont feel that it would be too hard. But we will see. Im a pollock so i figure i can figure something out. Polish ingenuity as my dad always called it. ahaha
I plan to get a glass drill bit, and counter sink holes in the bottle to create a good seal using rubber seals. and probably some sealant. Just like neat the bottom of the bottle. Then figure out a way to mount them in a kind "cup holder style". I feel that it would work, ill have to draw some things out and post them as i go
sounds like a cool idea.Not sure how well or if it is possible.I mean yeah power steering shouldnt be a problem.Brake fluid resovoir sits on top of the master cylinder so I dont know how that would work.Sounds cool but might be too much trouble than is worth.

I wouldnt trust glass under hot pressure man......... just my thought, the other ideas should work though
Trial and error? Lol
actually does anyone know how to do it when you actually move all the resevoirs to completely tuck th bay. i figured moving that brake reservoir for that would be close to the same thing. any one know?
Battery in the trunk
Top fill radiator instead of expansion tank
PS res under the fender
Washer bottle in the fender with filler below the headlight or ditch it completely.
SWF Washer bottle on a beetle.
Although if I'm totally honest, if you have cylinders from a junk car or your own car and a friend who's good at fabrication you could easily make your own. Some of them are surprisingly simple.
