[DML] My coolant bottle fix

Some will hate it, others will be intrigued....

I decide that it was time to do something about my coolant bottle. It 
had the typical discoloration and cracking towards the back (I was 
told this is due to the return input spraying hot coolant at that 
area) I made up my mind that before I plunk down some change on a SS 
aftermarket bottle I would attempt to reinforce my stock bottle. I 
used some fiberglass (not sure the ounce) that you can find at any 
hobby shop and Aerpoxy ES6209 to set it up. In case some of you are 
wondering ES6209 is one of the strongest epoxies in the world commonly 
used in aircraft (and in my case rocket) construction. I covered the 
entire bottle, which would now be able to hold 2700 psi if it were not 
for the cap, main hose connection, and return connection. I have no 
doubt that my new and improved bottle will hold 12 psi for ever.

Fiberglassing is not rocket science and can be learned by anyone who 
is willing and has a little patience. If anyone is interested in the 
procedure I used on my bottle feel free to email: valleyrat@xxxxxxxxx
