  • 25th February 2012 – Fitting the radiator

    The final job for today was to fit the radiator into the front on the engine bay. This proved to be a fiddly job due to its position and we jacked up the front end to get better access. We got the radiator kit from Gerry, which has a large capacity and made from copper which should give better cooling quality. It came with 2 angled brackets to bolt into either side of the body.

    Firstly we posted the radiator in from underneath to work out the position for the brackets. Its a very snug fit which is good but meant we had to carefully manoeuvre the radiator in and out a few times while drilling and fitting, careful not to damage the fins in the process. We haven’t got the fans yet but we’ll measure up for them soon and get them fitted.
