Need an idea for a radiatior overflow bottle, want to upgrade from the 600ml coke bottle.....

Something that can either be made, brought or improvised but looks a bit more professional.......

pwr alloy ones were bout $270 or so. bit pricey for overflow bottle and ya cant see the coolant level without removing the cap but they look good.

I had the same problem. Ended up getting 2 metal 1.5l water bottles. Came up ok for $25. You can kindof see them in the photo.
