    Hi all,

    I feel blessed to have an Ozclaw making its way half way around the planet.

    I'm looking for a bit of inspiration. I've spent the last 3/4 hours looking, trying to decide what to do to allow air as intended into the mouth of the claw, clearly I need to move/ditch the coolant expansion tank. I've seen some, but can't figure out if I'd be better with something high, or something low but that'll siphon to be functional.

    I'd like it to be inexpensive, but aesthetically pleasing.

    Please inspire me, pics would be good, a link to buy your suggestion would also be awesome.

    I went to a second hand store and bought an insulated metal coffee mug for 50 cents, drilled the sippy hole a little so the hose fit snug, but not pinched, and set it in the air box under the seat.

    I didn't think half a dollar was expensive. Guess I'm just a spoiled Merican. :(

    I moved mine into the empty air filter box. You only have to replace one hose. It doesn't get much cheaper. ;)

    I expect the Mitzy one would cost more than that just in shipping too. I couldn't really afford the claw at the moment, but hey ho
