    Im looking at adding a radiator overflow catch can but want something that appears to be somewhat factory looking and not a beer can or something along those lines. Im using a stock 26" radiator and and there is much room to mount anything so just curious what creative options you all have seen or currently using.

    I'm running a 48 oz water bottle from walmart in my 73.

    It doesn't look totally out of place.

    Note- I found 32 oz was not enough to hold the volume of water than went back and forth from the radiator.

    ...and this is a stock 318.

    I purchased a " hot rod" octagonal or hexagonal one from Summit or Jegs appx 15 years ago.. Small enough I installed it between the grill and the radiator. Can't even tell its there.... Solved all of my problems with overheating at cruises..

    Over flow hose out and down the rad by core support then through the hole at bottom of radiator support. Don't know what car you have. These cars did not have a recovery system like the new ones.

      Once I got the capacity right I went from adding water every other trip to only adding it about every 15 trips or less.

        Thanks for the replies everyone. I'll look at what Summit has to offer.
