    Now that looks kinda cool...All we need now is someone to think up a hi-flow/lo-volume set up, maybe with a couple of wiper fluid pumps...

    Pretty cool, the only thing i'd do different is put a diverter valve in the line so that the antifreeze only entered the unit when you need it.

    Also, plastic welders can be had very cheaply and would be a good method to ensure a leak proof seal on the fittings.

    I'm just curious as to where you get the water? Where I go usually the only thing with more dirt in it than the water is the mud. From previous experience taking "cold" showers, 5 gallons goes pretty quick.

    That is pretty slick though. I wonder why no one thought of it before...

    Marc, you smartass.

    Did that other guy ever come get the tire groover?

    And by the way, is there any chance you've got a picture of your Rockwell transfer case? There's a guy at ORC that says he has some kind of divorced transfer case that he hasn't been able to identify and I was thinking maybe it's the same as yours.

    where did you get the ABS? I pm'd you before but never got a response. I've got a coil built but can't find any 4 1/2" tube to put it in that will withstand the heat.

    A few years ago the bigger home building suppliers starter carrying black ABS. At Home Depot, if you can get it in white PVC you can usually get it in black ABS.
