[DML] kevlar wrapped header bottle



A recent thread about concerns for a galvanic reaction between a stainless header coolant bottle and aluminum sparked an idea.  This group tends to shoot ideas down pretty quickly by spotting flaws so I am posting this.... What if I wrapped a coolant bottle in kevlar using a fiberglass epoxy to strengthen it and protect it from heat?  I realize the cost is prohibitive for many owners but I am considering trying this myself with some old kevlar I have around.  I'm not looking to stop rounds here, but I think it should strengthen an original bottle, maintain an original look (kevlar fiber is a yellowish tan color) and make a bottle that will withstand anything that you could throw at it in the engine compartment.  As I said, I want to turn 6859 into the absolute most up to date type of Delorean (as soon as I do this I'll probably sell her and look for another challange :)
