This is the cornerstone of divergent thinking. And it happens to be the first rule of improv: Say Yes. If you suggest an idea and it gets shot down, it probably makes you less likely to suggest another one.

Plan your build Before you start cutting into your own grape juice containers and sealing be sure it fits in your car. Find a spot to cram your plastic container into. It needs to be away from direct conact to the motor. Near the battery or air filter is preferable.
