Shape of the fibreglass isnít great, but it will do for now

Been waiting ages for 1 chargecooler rad to be made, and 2 turn up at once!


Turns out there was an issue at the fabricators, and the 1st was made too small. So now I have to work out what to do with the 2nd one ��

The correct one fits perfectly. Both outlets on the LHS, with a bleed on the other. It’s the exact dimensions of the grill opening, and fits between the end tanks of the Focus rad





Final plumbing from the pump to the rad to run next, then that’s the last of the big stuff.

Currently wiring in the lights, then it’s wipers, reverse light, and fog light.

Looks amazing as always.

Who do you use to make your rad. I'm going to need a pair similar for my race car and also a custom intercooler.

Bit of an update from today

A-panels are bonded on, so is the door skin.
Doors fitted
Steering column had to be refitted as the steering wheel was off centre.
Few other bits

They have to be bonded, they’re carbon!

Just that when I fitted the column after welding on the the quick release boss, I didn’t have the splines lined up

Been contemplating how to mount the additional radiator, and came up with this solution

The main rad has a u-section channel on top



So made a right angled bracket with a return on it. Used high temp silicone to attach it






Fairly happy with the fit.
