Stupid Question of the Day: Cleaning up the firewall a bit, and this damn ugly coffee can reservoir....

Is anyone using something a bit different? Aftermarket? A quick eBay browse, and I see several for brake boosters, which I guess would work.

embrace the Ford Soup can!

it's for the climate controls so the vacuum operated doors don't open & close with the gas pedal, the brake units are overkill to replace the soup can. GM, Dorman & Ford all have a round plastic ball, you could hide that or the soup can on the back side of the wheel tub / in the fender

Soup can fits/hides nicely under the hood hinge area. They usually fall off the mounting brackets and end up there anyway.
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

I was looking at those round ones. Seems like you could hide those away nicely. Thanks!
