Coolant reservoir AFTER battery relocation

Before anyone says "use the search bar" I've spend a lot of time looking around for some pics of this... lol but after we swapped in the H22 on this Type S conversion I moved the battery to the trunk to free up some space and I've run into the dangling-coolant-reservoir problem. Right now some electrical tape and zip ties are the only things securing it and I'd like a more permanent solution.

I used the tray as the base for my battery box in the trunk so using that is not an option. Does anyone have any pics of their install or helpful suggestions? The free space where the battery once is now occupied by my MSD ignition controller and coil, so I was thinking of fabbing a little bracket or something... any help would be appreciated.

Re: Coolant reservoir AFTER battery relocation

Can I show off? Here's a teaser... Maybe i'll post all of the information with a writeup if there's interest.

besides zipties to hold the stock resi to the radiator support, There is a cheaper method. I did this awhile ago - but some pics leaked before I was ready to show it off... cost me $23 tops but it's one of those "at your own risk" ordeals.






The green tube is just there to show where the line runs. NOT used while installed.

Post it bro! That's almost exactly whatt I was thinkin... there's a lot of empty space down by the a/c fill lines--a writeup would be bitchin and I'm sure a lot of folks would be as stoked as I..

That's very clean. I like it! I pulled the battery out of my car and there's a lot of rust. Darn Chicago weather.

Re: Coolant reservoir AFTER battery relocation

You can also make a bracket for a 5th gen accord PS reservoir bracket... I like this better though. Definitely need it cause mine is ziptied too. :/
