yep ., 90mm its looking like , ordered one up , should arrive friday , so will prove if it fits over weekend,

might mount rad where mini grill is , like i did with intercooler on old race car ...

be simpler than running pipes to back of car etc to put rad in boot

Cracking progress in the latest vid. I know you keep saying 'race car' but are you going to try to MOT it or trailer to the venue?
