Stogie, you can clean the nozzles in vinegar or pool acid if they become clogged. Also, do you run a bikini top or something. Full sun out west is brutal and I have to have some sort of shade, even with the misters. I have a small portable pump that has a misting nozzel on it that I use. Same function, just need to manually pump it every 5 minutes.

Nice job. In MS, it's around 80 - 90 % humidity most of the summer. If simply turn on the A/C top up or down. It works very well when you are stuck in traffic.

Good write up. I've been wanting to do this to mine for quite some time now. I saw (probably) the same online one as you, but never followed up on it. My only thing would be how to do it since I don't have OBA. Any ideas on how to do it in another fashion?

My setup does not use OBA, it uses an RV pump. Since you are local I would be happy to meat for a beer, and you could see it first hand.

Yes! Have them spray acid at the passengers if they do not entertain you! Or you could use it to threaten kids into behaving! For that matter you could use it as a mobile interrogation vehicle.

Last summer I had a hand pump version and the water usage is very little. I had a one gallon container and it would last a week or longer. Now, that is intermittent usage. I might have used more if I had this setup.

What is your psi range? I am assuming that if you are anywhere below 500 psi you wouldn't get a good spray.

Hey that is a very cool idea, especially for Jeepers like me that live and wheel in desert areas. I can only think of one nice-to-do enhancement which would be to run distilled (or deionized which is the same thing) water (sold by the gallon in all supermarkets) if you live where hard water is prevalent. That'd prevent the nozzles from clogging with hard water deposits and from leaving white hard water desposits all over the Jeep's interior.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

Nice - ive seen one before on a very nice CJ the nozzles where in the roll cage along with the lines. He lived in Arizona and went out in the desert exploring a lot with only a bikini top and at slow speeds so his nozzles were in the front. His ran off of a coke canister (the kind for fountain drinks) Im not sure exactly how it worked. Its a great idea thanks for sharing.

Oh, that is a great idea! If you have a CO2 system you can plumb it to the soda keg and run the system on compressed Co2. That is what they are designed for after all.

It might also be possible to use an onboard compressor to preasurize the soda keg.
That would be great also.

I don't have anything to add, just wanted to say I love this

Kind of reminds me of those misters in the produce section at the supermarket. Very cool idea!

Are the misters the same kind you find in the gardening department at Home Depot to mist plants and grass in automated systems ? Can you turn the end to ajust the mist or is it fixed depending of the PSI you feed them?

The misters that I have were from a patio misting system. My nozzles do not adjust. You could find some that do adjust. I'll bet the garden misters would work. You would have to see the misting pattern and make sure it is fine enough.

Here is a link for a patio system. There are many out there.

And those systems work very well... try Vegas in August! They have them at most of the outdoor bars. Worked well at keeping me near the bar and spending money
