crexcrex grill block

Perhaps I need to finish my undertray?

Re grill blocking not sure if you misdirected your question re grill blocking i however have been eco modding long before the term ever arose. My grill dosen't exist as i have no grill to block. My rad is cooled by two small elcectric fans that draw air from two 12 inch oval holes with a duct running to the rad. Underhood engine heat is vented re the front fenders as i have drilled eight two inch holes on each side to vent the heat rather than bieng drawn underneath the car body..............In terms of overheating i have had no problems whatsoever. Will eventually put a few pix up to give you a better idea unfortunately at the moment i am designing side mirors unlike anything that is on the market. The beauty is that they are aerodynamic and does not detract from the appearance of the car.
best of luck......................
