Coolant resevior not transparent

Anyone have any tips for checking coolant levels when the resevior is not transparent and it's in a bad spot so I can't even take the cap off and look in?

--A clean stick, or piece of flexable plastic... oh wait you cant get the cap off, bugger.

umm... all I can suggest is if you wanna clean it, remove it and buy some C.L.R. Mix the clr 60/40 with water, put it in the tank with some fine gravel (4-10mm) and shake like crazy.

Make sure you rinse it out thoroughly and get all the gravel out before replacing it.

And the tires were smoking, like my car that time I forgot to drain the oil out before I put the new stuff in....
