    Same thing happened on my brand new $1000+ Brassworks radiator. It leaked! A $1000+ radiator shouldn't leak!! I know what you mean. I had to pull the entire front off to get the damn thing out. But I did't send it back to them. Took it to a local shop and they fixed it free. Thanks J&B Radiator.

    Brassworks need to get a better handle on QC. I can't recommend them to anyone!

    Marcus I know this sounds crazy but I just wanted to post "So your misfortune could stay on page one :D" and say recently I fixed a small leak in my driver with Ground Black Pepper:eek:

    Not saying you need to pepper your rad , just thought it was and amazing way to fix a leak.

    I know I must sound like a tweeker!!!! Lol!!!!

    See you at Pomona my friend!!!

  5. Bummer about the rad. I hate when stuff happens like that after spending good money. I guess I'll steer clear of Brassworks as well. Thanks for the picture of the louvres. Looks great. Lots of work the striper for sure. Interior looks so clean. Dash looks sanitary. SW Blueline gauges are just right in there. I'm going out to the garage and work on my dash after seeing that.

    wow, I used to ride in that car all the time when lee had it. Even helped him lift the body on and off the frame a few times....the 34 looks amazing...Unreal.......side note: Its also responsible for me tasting brake fluid for the first time...as it was injected into my mouth at 5,000 psi when lee was bleeding brakes during its first build.... kinda spicy

    haha, I remember that, Im actually the one you can't see in the picture at the back passenger side corner in the white shirt I think? If not I know I was there that day. It could have easily been possible that I let everyone else do all the heavy lifting:D
