Project - DIfferential Resevoir

Not sure if this is the section to post this...but if not...moderators...I apologize

After seeing everyone talking about running the resevoirs for the diffs at the track, I was thinking this seems like a really good idea. SO...I am in the our engineering lab today and it was project time!!

We have a ton of these 2" ID cylinders laying around so I thought this would make a great start for a home made setup....here is how it went...

Cut a section of pipe to length, since one side was already threaded for the cap...one side would already be done!!

Turned the threads on the other end, and cleaned up the outside on the lathe

Changed up the design and am just about finished with this. Going to go ahead and mount this in the trun area, since it was evident trying to get this underneath the car was a real pain in the a$s. Should have the mounting brackets done tomorrow, and the fittings will be here Friday!

Decided to make a few more changes to the canister and mounting bracket, so will do that tomorrow, and laser out another bracket
