Wow I cant believe its been over a year since i last posted on here! That cant be right? must have lost loads of posts.

Anyway the mini ran and drove but over heat. so I ditched the metro radiator and replaced it with a much better alloy one.



This rad has bigger outlet/inlet so bigger coolant lines needed allong the car.
First job was to make a 90deg clamp then on to making the bends etc for the coolant pipes all out of alloy.



chopped the alloy pipe and used the clamp to hold it in place while i tacked it.



The most complicated one started like this.



...and finished like this.



to be continued, laptop is doing my head in. this has taken half hour to write this.

ok going to have to put up with how some photobucket works for me!

there is the top pipe and bottom pipe in place.



I added a bleed point to the top tube just after the thermostat.



The inlet to the rad has a mounting point onto the subframe.



fitted to the car. The fan switch acts as a bleed point at the front.



These are the pipes which run the length of the mini. they are boxed in because i will be channeling air down the old exhaust tunnel from the front, plus a nice flat floor.

This was from when it was all going in.



next instalment will be the work to the rear suspension.

Good work with the pipes! Much nicer than rubber hoses
