Well that went to plan, I would’ve liked to get it a bit further back and may well be able to do so when the rad’s in the final position. I need to fill the sides and top in to the size of the core, then make some new front body/bumper support too. I’m happy with the look so far and I don’t think it looks too out place??

That's how it should be done!! Brilliant. Neat and subtle, a proper retro-modern, updated classic 8)

All done, the top of the opening slopes upwards to meet the top of the intercooler. I’ll probably paint the intercooler black and fit some kind of grille on there to protect it..

Well it’s all fastened in, need to take it out, make the final version of the engine mounts and sort the bulkhead out now. Looking good though 👍
