SRT Hood!!! Help....

So I'm attempting to swap the hoods and now the coolant overflow bottle is stopping my progress.

Would an SRT overlow help?

I only ask because, I have no idea what I would need since the caps differ from radiator cap and flip top...

***Update***

Different cooling system, so swapping the reservoirs isn't an option.

Possible solution is I'll attempt to fab a bracket to drop existing reservoir to clear hood.

Depending on how low it is already, that *may* cause minor headaches. You want the overflow bottle to be the highest point in the system on level ground. That way, air bubbles in the system will find their way to the overflow bottle when you're doing a flush/refill.

Probably not a show-stopper, though.

So after shifting the overflow bottle every-way possible with the limited space, the solution was the creation of a 1.5" tab to allow the overflow bottle to rotate and remain at the stock height. Enjoy the pictures below, subject to your questions.
