New Radiator Overflow Reservoir Has Arrived!

My new radiator overflow reservoir arrived this week in the midst of the sweltering heatwave. 

It appears the reservoir is a match and the fit on the car is perfect. One downside is the cap from the old tank does not fit the new reservoir. After examining I am wondering if the previous owner lost the original cap and tried to substitute a different cap, thus breaking the lip of the tank. I will need to order a new cap in the near future.

I was not able to do much on the car this last week because it has been so hot. The thermometer inside the garage was pegged at its max reading of 99.9, so you can imagine how hot it was outside! It was just too hot to be working in the garage. It is cooler this weekend so I intend to make up for lost time.
