Test fit went well.... Until you open the headlights. The arms were making contact with the tank. I will be making some adjustments and trying again.

I do however need help from you NA guys... In the form of a picture. I've been searching for pics that show how far the factory hood prop comes to the coolant tank but generally if you have a factory hood prop, it won't be down in any engine bay pictures.



Can one of you NA guys send me a picture in the same angles as these (with your factory hood prop down)

Yeah, I don't have mine anymore either. I just want to make sure there isn't any fitment issues incase someone who wants a tank still has the factory prop.

Good to know your tank will be good to go though

Thank You! We are good to go, the final tank is 1/2" skinnier to clear the headlight arms.

Attention NA owners, the NA coolant tank is ready!

Here is the finished product:





EDIT: I tried to edit the first post to show the new NA tank but it wouldn't let me.

Yes they will, unless you would prefer it without one.

I organised a mini-Group Buy for 6 NB coolant reservoir tanks to Australia (6 units kept it below the import duty tax threshold of A$1,000) and it filled within a couple of days.

- thanks for making these

Frank's tanks (good name for a product) arrived in Brisbane yesterday from the GB I organised:



One of the queries I got regarding the tanks was their capacity so here are the numbers with the tanks filled to the brim:

OEM NB tank = ~1200ml (OEM 16mm radiator)
OEM NB MSM tank = ~1500ml (OEM 27mm radiator)
Frank's tank = ~1750ml

ie. this tank will be better suited for larger (>27mm) radiators where it needs greater overflow capacity when it gets hot.

Yes, I still have a lot of materials pre-cut to make the tanks. I am currently in the process of relocating to Florida but I have to fly out for a few weeks for some training enroute. I most likely won't be able to get them made until I get settled in Florida in early December.

1/8" 5052 aluminum sheet metal. It's attached to the vertical bracing for the shock tower.
