    Pahahaha! Quality.

    Yea no offence instant It's primary school dinners from 30 years ago that have permanently scarred me.... I really do hate the stuff!

    I also have a phobia of baked beans (leguminophobia). I'm a weirdo

    Shaun. It's too late now but it would of been much easier to mount the radiator straight across the front and mount the fan behind it. You just reverse the wiring so it sucks rather than blows.

    Glad this is getting there.

    That's a relief that the hoses will hold the top,
    The reason I made the fan frame was ,I wasn't aware of a unit to do the job instead,!
    I was in the zone and one part lead to the other really,
    I was getting short tempered!! Unlike me lol.
    Every single nut/bolt/spanner ect was hiding away,
    Haz obviously don't like custard , my Mrs spits it out to!
    I love it,
    Wales ( omm not shure but living in hope,

    Another +1 on radiator mounted at bottom only. I have 2 mounts, not just the one though.

    And again, as per Instantyellowdisgustingmess, Rad fan attached using those plastic fixing kit things with the tiewrap style ratchet clips.

    I wouldn’t worry about your top mount too much, those hoses will do the trick, my rad is only fixed on one side and I’ve had no issues.
    Can you tell my why you messed around making a bracket for the fan when you could just cable tie or use a fixing kit to mount it directly to the rad through the fins?
    Hopefully see this at Wales, you certainly making enough progress to be there, keep it up me luvver

    I'm mainly happy about this mounting! It's easy to take out
    And fit !
    Not shure about relying on the 2 hosess as top mounts but
    It holds well at the moment!

    Thanks , I used to be good at ark but I now just get by lol
    Keep forgetting my mask ,
    Yes tooth brush worked brill !!
    I woke up and my teeth were all white lol
    Wales is a inspiration as well as all that wire is gone
    For all that modern injection junk!
    Only in my mind anyway, but it's working for me,
    Can't promise to be ready but I'm trying,
    So many members minis are not ready and when I look I think I have the least to do so all the best to everyone!!!

    It's a new Corsa type , was cheep a few years ago,
    The hoses are in correct place ,
    I was planning to mount it straight across front but I'm going
    To struggle with my Lecky fan so I'm thinking to go a little
    Bit sideways just to give me 2 inches for the fan on right
    Passenger side, it don't feel good but will
    Do for now Richard, trying to put a pic up but imgbb,
    Isent loading, will show n next vid,

    So many small things to do but in what order do you do them in ,
    I have access to any tool but 60 miles away , I chose to revisit altinator bracket, I'm happy now and put thought in
    So it's ajustable and not difficult to deal with, I think lol
