Radiator overflow relocation fix!

After several attempts to use the original overflow I lost patience with zip ties, baling wire, and brackets--I decided to pick up an aluminum overflow. The one I went with is actually designed for a Civic or teg, but it works fine for the Prelude application since the battery was relocated and the support bracket and battery tray are gone as well. Fits perfect. Here's some pics...

Freshly unwrapped overflow


Installed, side view

The MSD ignition bracket and module are going to mount where the battery used to be... I took a couple pix of the test fit.





So far I'm very pleased with the new overflow and the install was two minutes, easy to do. No more sloppy-lookin overflow!

Re: Radiator overflow relocation fix!

I plan to get it because I just got full aluminum radiator installed and my stock overflow doesn't look right so I need to get one but where did you get it, how much and what brand? Thanks.

Re: Radiator overflow relocation fix!

I picked it up on ebay for 69 shipping included. A little pricey for my taste but end result was good. It only fits if you take out the battery tray and bracket though.
