These pics are great. Are you going to duct air directly through the radiator? You can use black plumbing pipe insulation, wedging it into the cravices, securing it with zip ties at key spots.

He's using black lawn edging, same stuff I used, and I got the idea from Frank Lee and others on here... but they got it out of that great well spring of useful knowledge sometimes known as "redneck engineering". Awesome.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
