You can use any kind of container (Stainless steel, brass, plastic, 
glass) providing it has a screw top that can be drilled to receive a 
tube from the radiator overflow. The position of the overflow tank is 
not important so you can fit it low down well out of sight. Make sure 
the the hose/tube from the radiator overflow ends about a quarter inch 
from the bottom of the container. Also drill a small vent hole in the 
top. Make sure the radiator cap seals airtight, which usually means that 
you have to make up a thin stiff rubber/fibre washer between cap and 
radiator neck. Fully fill up the radiator and fill up the container 
about half full. Check and fill up regularly after the first few trips.
