Progress has been slow due to other things taking precedence, managed to get more interior firewall insulation done, clutch master cylinder mounted, and the transfer case shifter. I had some issues with the lower radiator hose, bought a gates stock replacement piece, but it didnít fit right and rubbed the frame and brake lines. Had to disassemble the piece (where there is a tee fitting in the center) and trim bits off of all four of the ends to get it to fit right without rubbing. That took forever as I had to install it and remove it multiple times until I was satisfied. Got the coolant overflow/reservoir tank mounted and the lines connected to it.

I started inspecting and test fitting the electric fans, as I mentioned in another thread, putting two 18Ē Thunderbird fans in a 34Ē radiator means they will overlap a bit on the sides and somewhat complicate mounting, but I donít want to take any chances with cooling.
