Would you mind posting up the pictures of the inner wheel arches that you cut?
By the looks of it you never removed the front end

VT-Doo, I wish I had more pictures inside the wheel wells, but I don't. There really isn't much left as you can kind of see in the other shots. I will ask Troy for a couple pictures and post as they come in.

For now, the custom Ron Davis radiator has arrived. Wow, looks great. Here's hoping the calculations are right and it cools the motor well.

Car is off to paint next week to fix several scratches and dings from having the motor replaced so many times.

VT-Doo - No, front was never removed completely.
cables - much cheaper in pounds sterling.

That's a work of art! Has it got an air bleed in the higher section of the rad?
Make sure you mount it in nice floating soft bushes of sorts - ally radators like to flex and give this design she might do unexpected things with some heat.....

Nioce!

Mini Fab - I purchased an A/C kit but I think that is getting a bit rediculous. Ironic, huh?

Glenno - thanks. Not sure about the air bleed. Definitely mounting it for flexibility.

A couple shots from today:

Well man just to humor you on your new acquisition , That rad looks very cool, with or without an a/c I believe that will work!

Got some pictures of the new alternator bracket today. I'm told that there isn't any chance of the alternator sagging with this thick piece.

*That radiator is bad ass!
*I think increasing caster angle can reduce effects of torque steer to a degree (no pun intended)
*There is no way to remove the air from the top 3 inches of your radiator ?!?!
