I was watching this show on TLC about Armored cars a few months back. These cars aren't your normal armored trucks carrying our money from bank to bank, these are Luxury cars which were equiped with armoring, bullet proof windows and ESPECIALLY a smoke screen.

Now to what I wanted to get at:
The guy who custom made these "mods" said that the smoke screen was very easy to do. He went on to say that all he had to do was make a little resevoir that housed Extra coolant. When the driver pressed a button it dumped some of that coolant into the exhaust causing it to burn. When it burned it released a HUGE white cloud out of the exhaust tips. Now I dont know excatly what part of the exhaust it dumped the coolant into.

I didn't post this with the idea of doing it to my car. But I was just wondering how that would work. Plus Im sure SOMEONE out there, in INTERNET LAND will probably attempt this. If you are that person, please post pics. :lol:

actually i did the shocking door handle thing and the flame thrower but i've yet to try the smoke screen.
i figure you would need a washer pump a resivior and some rubber hose with a misting tip on it also a momentary push button switch so it wouldn't stay on...

My method would include one of the theater smoke machines... but of course make it small and light enough so its not weighing you down... and then run the lines from the smoke machine to the exhaust right after the muffler, drill a hole through the tail pipe run the feed line through the hole, so you'll have the exhaust naturally blowing the smoke out and away from your car.

Of course you will have an arming switch inside the car that turns on the smoke machine and another switch to open the valve on the feed line

The color of the smoke was white. And this guy didn't use a machine or anything. He just said he would dump some of the cars coolant into the exhaust just by using a switch and the smoke would naturally come out from the exhaust.

Personally.... I wouldn't use the cars coolant. Maybe have a separate resivor (sp?).... just to be safe. Would probably make it much easier also.

get a reservior of coolant, tap into your exhaust manifold somewher and put an electric sprinkler valve between them. activate the switch and it opens, releasing coolant which will burn and make white smoke.
