i would hit the junkyards and find a bottle that might bolt to the fender somewhere. or go to a local speedshop and see if you can't find a small little relocation reservoir with universal mounting bracket.

Autozone has a nice coolant bottle for less than 10 bucks. Comes with a bracket and hoses. I have one on mine.

no nothing infront of the radiator
i am putting the taurus fan in because it has a shroud with it and its only $15 instead of $80 to $100 for one without a shorud



Do you have any coolers in front of the radiator? You can put the fan there instead and have it push the air through instead of pull it. Then you don;t have to change anything.

I'm using one of those universal overflow bottles from Murray's / Autozone etc. It's working well. I bought the larger one so it was a bit more than $10 but less than $20. I just modified the bracket a little. I hung mine on the grill support bars on one side and bolted the lower half to my fender.
