DIY: Catch Can

So after seeing that JLT makes one, but for newer models and for more than i would be willing to pay i decided to go ahead and make my own. Note that my pictures are from after install and my pieces are prepped for paint. You dont need to paint, i just got a STB and decided to paint both bright Atlantic.

Items: You will need a catch can that uses 3/8" inlet/outlets
You can get a plastic one, or a small one, but you will have to empty it more often. My catch can or CC is from Lowes and is an all metal cobalt unit that is hefty and a good size. $24

2 Brass nipples for inlet/outlet, 3/8 size. $8

Either brackets, or velcro to mount the CC to the firewall. The main deciding factor on what route you take is if you can drill and tap into the CC unit in order to mount brackets. You will also then have to use a bench vise to bend the brackets into the proper angle to mount to both the firewall and CC unit. Velcro is wayyyy easier but wont last and imo looks cheap. Thinking now if you dont have means to a tap set you could use epoxy to hold the brackets to the CC. Galvanized brackets wont rust and cost me $4

3' of 3/8'' fuel line. I only used about 2' but measure for your application. $4

Bolt and nut. Used to cap off the bottom of the unit, otherwise oil will leak you can use epoxy to seal the bottom as well. Had item

plumbers tape. had item

I had to remount my alarm to make room for CC but was able to utilize holes from it. I removed the filter that came with the unit, and put steel wool as a substrate for the oil to grab to.
