Default I Have This Idea...

Tailgaters REALLY **** me off. I have thought of many ways to show them that they do. Since tapping on my brakelight only works for a little while and it would be too cumbersome to put a scrolling word bar in my back window with a keyboard up front to say "back the **** up", I finally thought of a way to suppress the tailgater and spend less than $30 doing so:

Materials:
Old windsheild washer reservoir/pump assembly from a junk yard.

Lines to go with the assembly and some type of tips that turn the liquid into a mist.

Wiring and a switch

I would set the system up to spray from the back of my car somewhere when I hit a button mounted somewhere up front.


WHat I ask you all is what to put into the sprayer... I need to find a balance between letting them know to back off and putting the A-hole'* life at risk. (they can crash and burn for all I care but I don't want to go to jail or get sued )

I was thinking old oil but that wouldn't flow very well, paint thinner is too cruel plus it can get on my car , maybe water with some die in it so the know it'* coming from me and not think its just raining? Throw some Ideas out there.

Haha, that'* goin all out! I just hit my washer to **** them off. At highway speed it gives them a nice annoying mist. There'* no way you could get in trouble for it either.

I'd go with water with a slight blue dye.

I was thinking something similar.

I would plumb another line from my Methanol injection system to spray fuel and then have a spark plug ignite it.

on the 2000+ the washer ports are built on the wipers: Good for cleaning the windsheild, Bad for fending off tailgaters.

In that case, just get something like the flame throwing exhaust stacks on pickup trucks and install it on your tailpipes going out the back They'd back of REALLY quick!

If I wanted to cook em I go ahead and set up an exhaust-flame system and look good doing it . And that reminded me ho much I want to do that.

When I was young we did that, but we didn't go through the work of adding the gear. We just adjusted the current washer nozzles to spray up and over our car.

The good solution to use syrup diluted in water. Leaves nice sticky spots when it dries.

Another idea, I have actually seen someone use a long time ago was plumbing some small lines to drip oil just in front of your drive tires so you can smoke the hell out of your tires and cloud them with smoke.
