apart from painting the existing overflow tank, what else have other people done or seen that looks good.

ive heard about stainless steel replacement tanks but havent seen them, anyone have a pic or know where to get one from?

or maybe some sort of polished cover that slips over it?

im after some ideas cos id like to have a go at making something myself.

Try aluminium. Not stainless.
Most of those egg shell ones you can't see the coolant without removing the cap as they go all icky when they get of age.
But seriously? How often do you check your coolant? Or how lazy are you that you can't just remove the cap?

thanks for pointing out that they are alloy.
i check my coolant all the time but ive had a few leaks over the last few months so im a bit paranoid. with some small leaks the engine heat evaporates the coolant and the only way you notice it is cos you can see the coolant has droped slightly below the full mark and with the alloy ones its hard to notice such a small drop
