    Ask everyone on the HAMB, if they would like to have it. Bet there would be a lot of people who would love to have it!

  9. Your car looks great and keeping us updated with pictures is awesome. I know you are crazy busy with this project and work. If you get a chance could you take some pictures of the radiator mounts and fan clearance. I am mounting the radiator in my 32 and I have similar 8ba with the fan mounted under gen.
    From what I could see from your pictures you mounted the radiator about 2 inches forward of the stock location. Not a big deal without fenders or hood to be lined up. I am thinking at least an inch for fan flex.
    No rush, thanks in advance

    I actually flattened the firewall and moved the motor back a few inches to make room for the stock 8ba fan. The radiator seems to be in the correct spot because the stock hood still fits.

  12. My bad, saw the radiator tabs drilled at the back edge, water pumps looked to be the same location as mine and I am using stock K member and it did not look like the driveshaft was shortened so I assumed and you know what assuming does.
    Car looks great, nice job

    Finally secured the battery, had these giant old brass wing nuts so I decided to put them to use.
