    I agree. The guy that did this is an artist with a tig. Welding aluminium is all he does. 8 hours a day. 5 days a week. Must be a very boring job for him but the results are fantastic.

    Not true. I think you missed the part where I said I had someone else make it.

    WOW, way to make my Amazon purchased tank look cheap and pathetic.

    started a topic Buttercup gets tanked.

    Buttercup gets tanked.

    Coolant recovery tank that is.
    Since I have the radiator fan thermostat probe in the top tank of the radiator, I have to be sure the radiator stays full at all times. The solution is a coolant recovery tank.
    I dug out my CAD and fabricobbled one.

    After sorta finishing it I decided it probably wouldn't hold water. So I took my fabricobbled mess up to my favorite aluminum fabricators, Wayne's Industrial, Douglasville, Ga. (formally Precision Race Cars).
    Waited a couple days and went and picked it up.
    It's nice, and it's nice to know some REAL fabricators.
