Coolant return line modification I'm sharing

Hey team just wanted to share my mod. for my coolant overflow return line that kept breaking. Finally got sick of it and had to fix it once and for all. Only draw back is that if you touch it while it's hot, you will scream and jump.

Before I looked at the pics, I thought about that same fix. My only thing I might change is, to run the line under the radiator mounting plate. Did you have this made, or use ice maker line?

Good Job!

I thought about running it under too when I was doing it what stopped be was I thought that it would rub on other things during driving and damage something, plus I kind of like the look. I got this from my work it's a high pressure line costs a lot, they didn't need it anymore as they changed some design and these lines are left overs. Don't know if ice maker line can take the heat but that might work too. If anyone wants to do the mod. I might be able to get some more lines. Also need all the end fittings.
