Permanent/elegant oil change solution.

Someone asked yesterday about the miserable battery placement and oil fill on an axis/VEGAS.

The pictures are the solution I came up with.
It is on back burner because I don't need to save by doing my own oil changes.
I have assembled this kit, bought the fancy oil plug and the spill proof filter remover.

When I move the battery to the front passenger bin I'll go ahead and do this oil change thingy.

The odd clear part is the lower half of the funnel of which I show the packaging.
That part replaces the oil fill cap on the engine and locks on exactly the same as Ford original equipment cap.

The pipe is stainless steel radiator hose. It comes with very fancy inserts to,adapt,to,the clear piece and the filler head.

Drill a hole under the passenger mirror, install that locking water cap, and you can fill oil from outside the vehicle without even opening the hood.

All of this came from Amazon (except the idea)

I LOVE my garage pvc interlocking, no glue, floor.
