Default why do I waste my time

making stupid crap like this. All I needed was a standard catch can to use for a washer fluid bottle. Decided to make one instead, since I love pissing myself off. Probably $10 at Summit, instead I spent about 2 hours and crap sitting in the garage (3" and 2" exhaust pipe)....









starting to run out of space

Wait.... is that really just a washer fluid bottle?

If it is, it needs more triangulation. No way that'll ever hold up.

There is plenty of room between the seats nick used to have a cd player in a zip lock bag between the seat

Are you putting DOT glass in it or plexy glass??

I've had the windsheild (1/2 lexan) and the wiper on for a while, but as soon as it gets muddy it is useless.

and I need heat.

right now I have the cut brake between the seat but that is going to be replaced with a compact push button deal. CD player is going up close to the firewall. Hopefully the battery will go under a seat.
