G'day fellas,
I'm was wanting to replace my washer bottle to one similar to the PWR expansion tanks but have not found anything.
I know there was a thread a while ago which started to look into but just stopped.
I was wondering if anyone has one i'm after, if so where did they get it, or what they did to make the bottle to look better??
Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Cheers

Yeah, I was going to organise PWR or a local guy (Performance Fabrications) to make a bunch, but there was very few other people willing to pay the price that they would probably end up (around $300.00ish estimate).
If you find anything, let me know, as I'm still keen.

Redline used to make a billet washer bottle to suit Holden Gemini's, I found it when flicking through one of there catalogues (old one) at work one weekend. I called them withb the intention of ordering it into work to see if it would work, but they don't do them any more.

Why would anyone buy a solid washer bottle????

Surely it would be better to have a hollow one that can hold water??? :wink:

Ahoy hoy
Got in touch with a local guy today about getting my expansion tank and washer bottle made (alum I think). He'll be getting measurements off me next week and a better price estimate (he's thinkning about the $200 maybe).
My question is are the washer bottles (and expansion tanks at that) the same in other model falcons as the one in my AU2 fairlane?
If so I'll see if i can get a few made up for people on here.
I just have to say now that this wont be a group buy or anything, as I know he's pretty busy - does it in his own time, so I would get them made before I 'sell' them. If that makes sense

i would be interested in one for my EF but i would want the expansion tank a little bit custom. The corner of it on an angle like the ea ones so more room for my turbo pipe.

yeah i remember talking about this, there was another bloke that was talking to somone about doing this but i never remember hearing anything back from him. im keen for a polished bottle, tried a few ideas but none of them were any good so i just painted mine black so it doesnt stick out so much
here is a pic, not the best pic but you can see how it doesnt stand out from the crowd anymore, bout the best i could come up with

you can get them off ebay... for $300+.
I didn't really want to spend that much, and they don't have washer bottle ones either.
Thought I may aswell do both at the same time by the same guy.
