Default w/washer reservoir relocation - tried this product?

Hello,

Have a 'Canadian' Nb (02) and the windshield washer reservoir is located right over the exhaust manifold.

Has anyone used the 'moss' reservoir relocation kit? I've seen two other options but both are double the price (begi/fm).

Colin

Links? I thought the trick setup for NBs was the suzuki cappachino bottle mounted in the cowl.

This. Order the Cappuccino/Nopro bottle and bolt it up with some scrap metal and bolts using existing holes.

The one that Moss is selling is a generic bottle that you can buy at any local auto parts store for about half that price.

Ahh. I was going to say, find a bottle from a non ABS car and you should be fine, but it looks like that isn't an option.

i had one for a ford focus laying around its mounted in the driverside fender, that i thought would work well on a miata. but never got around to installing it. the filler is on the far front section and is easily removed, needs about a 1/2 to 3/4in hole to fit through, or could easily be routed somewhere else with some flexible rubber line. the entire assembly cost me like 15 bucks at the junkyard.

U.S. Plastics has plenty of bottles of all shapes and sizes, fairly cheap. Certainly not any 120+ bucks for a simple blow molded tank.

Wow, I only paid $60 for mine few years back. Shipping might kill it, but these are significantly cheaper.

Just waiting to hear back from two vendors regarding shipping.
