    Project: Build a Cool Suit system

    After driving in Daytona with a Cool Suit I have to say that I never want to drive again in the heat without one. So amazing, the rush of cool when the system is turned on turned a very hot day into a very easy to drive with temperature. I have the shirt but I now need the cooler, pump, electrical and connection tubes. Cost for the system runs about $500 US (shirt was about $158 US from ogracing.com). I am thinking about using a GM windshield washer pump as (because cost) and I will need to source the cooler, medical grade tubing and electrical.

    Anyone else interested in a system?

    Is a gym windshield washer pump ok to run at the duty cycle required for the cool suit?

            The cool shirt pumps are $20-30 ish at the Chandlery. They are just a bilge pump.

            Then you need a cooler, drill holes, run wires, get tubing with break away clips, run the tubing to bilge. Then you need clamps to keep cooler shut, and someone to mount the box so it won't move when car corners hard.

            Not hard, just time consuming and annoying.

                Def can do this cheap. I paid $30 for a shirt and the system we never used in barb only cost $100 to build.

                Old cooler, some pipes and connections and a pump.
