I was out camping a few months ago in the GQ Patrol and saw my heat hardened radiator bottle disintegrate on some really rough tracks. I tried to gaffer it together but that was short lived. The next best solution was the Ribena bottle I had in the back seat.

With my travel plans, I decided that getting a proper bottle would be a good start.

I bought the new bottle from a bloke named Greg on eBay. He replied to my emails quickly and I had the new bottle arrive the day after payment. The bottle looks to be of reasonable quality but I’m not convinced it’s built to live though 220,000k’s like the last one.

Here are a few pictures of my radiator overflow bottle replacement!

The new overflow bottle looks out of place in my very dirty engine bay!
