Final Prototype Bracket
Welcome back! Our final bracket prototype is in and ready for installation. Check it out!
This bracket is constructed from 1/8” steel and is powder coated for additional protection against damage from road debris. We overbuilt this unit to ensure longevity and optimal resistance against potential damage.
Check out the hardware we will be using to attach our housing to the bracket. This hardware is also powder coated to prevent corrosion.
Next, we assembled our filter housing, filter, and bracket together.
We then installed this system to ensure fitment on our test vehicle.
As you can see, we are using ball valves at the hose connection point to our filter housing. By shutting these valves, one can perform filter changes without draining a substantial amount of fluid. Here is a closer look!
We are also utilizing silicone lines to route coolant from the heater hose to our filtration system, and then back to the degas port. Check out the route of these lines.
Once installed, the primary components of this kit are hidden from view. Here is what you will see once this kit is in place.
As with our other kits, this will be offered with your choice of black, blue, or red silicone hoses.
And that’s it, the project is complete. Check out a shot of all components included in this kit!
Thanks for following along with our development progress. For those interested in picking up this kit, we will be launching a discounted pre-sale next week!
