I installed the new coolant overflow tank that you guys pressured me into buying today :emotions33: and tidied up a bit under the hood. Now I can see the coolant level, what a bonus! The old one was pretty ugly for sure.

I can't believe you put that filthy hose and rusty hose clip on that beautiful overflow tank!

LOL - I know that you know I am just kidding in good-natured fun... Apologies, if it triggers the OCD too badly!

Love the rig! You ain't kidding calling it a rocket!

This is not true. Limited lifetime means as long as you own the car and no damage to the part that would come from incidents outside it's normal operating condition. Now nobody wants to just throw parts under warranty at a problem.
Also, just take it to a different Autozone when it craps out again.

Come on man you’re killin me! I cleaned the hoses up and used Silk Shine on all the rubber and plastic. I did not paint the clamps because I figured it would flake off when I opened them up to install ‘em. I actually bought 3 different sizes of expandable woven wrap as well as big enough heat shrink to install on the smaller hoses in order to look like braided line but discovered I couldn’t get it to look right where the tight bends are. I have only received one size of the wrap and no heat shrink due to shipping issues but I did slip that over the tube and taped one end to simulate the heat shrink and then tried pulling the other end to make it tighten up. I have used this on regular, non- formed hose that doesn’t have tight bends and it looks awesome. Not with this hose though, the sharp bends make it look terrible because there’s no way for it to be tight on the inside of the bends. I may revisit this with different hose that I’ll have to buy. So as you can see…I did try. I also swapped out the lousy ribbed plastic overflow hose that came with the tank with my rubber one. :p
Edit: OCD was in full swing, no prodding needed!

I don't think it did. It was already pulled. I THINK he said it came from a Z71, but I'm not sure. I traced it as far as the crossmember above the spare. It looks like it goes into a "T", but since it's lowered I didn't have much room under it to move around--since I didn't jack it super high.

That vent line looks like the one that attaches to the carbon canister.

I wonder if you could put a small
Section of shrink over the top
Of the braid where it makes sharp bends, to hold it in the corners..? :hmmm2:
