    In our quest to continuallly improve our product and implement suggestions from our customers who did not want a full composite bottom but wanted a sight glass we decided to create this piece; a two for one sight glass and extender and this is the result.

    Years ago we offered the catch can extender to the race community as a group buy. We still receive requests for that and also are asked about incorporating a sight glass into our solid billet catch can.

    We did some homework on sight glasses in general but were never really thrilled with the overall offerings so we decided to manufacture our own out of the composite we use to make our clear composite bottom with. As a result we created this.

    We sold out of our inital offering late last week and will be making more in September. If you would like to purchase this piece you can do so here (http://www.custombilletstore.com/product_p/200019.htm) we will start delivery again right after Labor Day. Thanks again everyone.

    Absolutely I dig mine as well. I'm over a year in with my setup on my Magnum and I love it. When I was running a 373 gear on it that can was filling up every 1200 or so miles now I empty it around 2700 miles in. Its a bonus to be able to see it.

    Many folks ask us why we don't offer the drain or petcock valve to empty. We just are not real comfy with the hardware you purchase for those most are made overseas and we stay away from hardware or materials that are not sourced locally, made by us or made in The United States. We have done some very trick one off setups one running our our VP's blown and strocked Magnum. I'll get a picture of that so everyone can see. In the mean time "the difference is clear" ;)

    What is the site glass made of? Will it yellow or melt? I must assume it is plastic.

    Howdy

    All good questions... Please be assured that this has been thoroughly tested long before we sold it. These have been on the Modern mopar market for awhile now with about 300 or so on the road. Also remember we have a 1 yr warranty on all of our products against workmanship. Any other questions please do not hesitate to ask..

    Howdy, "[a]ll good questions," but none of them were directly answered. What is the site glass made of?

    Good Morning. It is a polycarbonate based material we use in the otherside of our business. We machine and assembly high end optical components for both commerical and military applications.

    The composite can has been on my personal ride for well over a year and been on our Ram for 18 months and also in my SLK as well as my SL Mercedes. We tested the composite on both the Ram and SLK for extended periods prior to release. Several years ago we offered a goup buy with a different material that did yellow after some time. As with any composite based material never use any acetone or harsh abrasive chemicals on the material. Just a nice soap out with dawn dish detergent after you dispose of the waste oil properly.
