Keep showing us pictures like that and you may have people queuing up! :D
I've had enough restoring this one!😁

It will just be nice to know that I won't be breathing in decayed foam and rust when I put the fan on!😎

Cooling Fan

Just bought the fan kit at Scimfest from Walkers which comes with proper mounting brackets. Fitted the new fan now and it is a much neater installation with close fitting brackets, rather than the previous fan which seemed to blow air around the radiator rather than through!
