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.

Andrews right, looks like you could have the room to rear mount it, only problem would be if itís a push/blow type fan, it wouldnít move as much air running backwards.

No offence taken Haz, never heard of a fear of beans before, your right though, you are wired! :P

Whatís left to do Shaun? You sound like you donít have high hopes of making it to Wales, you seem to be make by good progress and thereís a couple of weeks left.

Yes lads your point is a good one ,
Apart from I'm not able to exsept the suck fan prinsible,
Think it's just a blank I have about the principable
If it was impossible I would have bitten the bullet and been forced to do that,
I'm trying to get it ready for wales but stuff just keeps getting
In the way so will have to see,
Eather way I'm going forward ,

O yeah baby! Story of the mini valvers life lol
I should/may buy smaller battery as you say,
Bit lothed to as I have that good battery spair ,for a change!
And I'm pished wiv myself coz I didn't see it comeing,
I may have a way around it , but will need to remove and replace angle and move it back by removing the spacer that sits behind rose joint to keep it out,
But I can't see what purpose the r,j has really,
Apart from a obvious bit of link strength,

Realy close sugarpuff, apart from I been back at bunker for a week ,away from mini, I have now got basic wheels coz I couldn't even roll it and it stuck rite tight in corner,
I got steel petrol pipe I need and a few other bits,
Still need gear selector and much,much worse I needed
To send v5 off for one thing and the other but can't find it even though I saw it not long ago, yes I'm pished off,
I know that doesn't stop me trayloring it but it just adds to
Frustration,

Anyway I'm still happy that I'm AT IT !!
