    Whenever I get stuck at a portion of a project on the car, I like to switch gears and focus on small part restoration. It’s usually the quickest way to instant satisfaction.

    That is super snazzy! What brand of radiator did you go with? It looks like a great fit!

    Looks like the fan may be too far forward into shroud. 1/2 in, 1/2 out is the general rule....Jim

    Darron, I used a champion brand called American Eagle. This rad was brought up several times on the board as being a cost effective but good quality piece:

    Agreed Jim, but I don’t think there’s is a solution right now. I’m using a short water pump with the correct ‘70 pulleys. Hopefully it will be fine with everything being brand new.

    Can you trim the shroud?
    It may not be an issue, but I imagine your not going to take it easy on this car, being purpose built. Jim
